Abstract: Hong Kong has a unique noise problem unparalleled by other metropolitan cities in the world.Hong Kong is sometimes labeled as one of the noisiest cities in the world.Hong Kong has made tremendous efforts to improve its noise environment with some success.However,major noise problems remain,partly because of the congested urban structure,and partly because of past neglect in noise planning in the 70’s and earlier that cannot be resolved overnight.Traffic noise is the single most notorious noise source in Hong Kong,80% of the population in Hong Kong are affected by road traffic noise to different extent.This paper presents the extent of the traffic noise problem and the current traf-fic noise policy in Hong Kong;it also discusses the problems encountered and concludes with HKIOA’s proposed traf-fic noise control policy for further considerations.
