Abstract

Noise pollution may have negative impacts on human health and environmental. The primary aim of this study is was to determine and mapping the noise pollution in the urban part of the city Banja Luka in Bulevar Cara Dušana by evaluating noise levels in the boulevards. The aim of this investigation is also compare measured noise levels in the boulevards with legislation. The measured values exceeded the level of noise allowed. Because they are at all measuring points at study area mixing two zones I (hospital, rehabilitation) and III (trading, business, housing and housing next to traffic corridors, warehouses excluding heavy transport) it can be concluded that the noise level values in this area are alarming.
