Noise barriers on the A8 - creative integration into the environment

70,000 vehicles move daily through the section of the A8 between Gruibingen and Mühlhausen at only a short distance from the residential areas. For this reason, noise control measures have been integrated in the six-lane expansion project. Josef Rädlinger Ingenieurbau GmbH took on the construction of approximately 370 metres of noise barrier. In December, six lanes were opened to the traffic.

For Transport Minister, Ramsauer, these noise measures mean a "noticeable and audible increase in the quality of living and life" in the adjacent towns. The optics were also not forgotten in the planning. Various materials, structured and colourfully designed reinforced concrete elements, gabion towers filled with typical local rock, and trellises for plants enabled an appealing integration of noise barriers into the environment.
