Noise pollution on roads as traffic noise creates problems for surroundings that can have negative effects on animals, human health and environmental quality. The main reason behind the noise pollution is uncontrolled volume and speed of vehicles running on roads which lead to overcrowded roads and increase in traffic. With 1.3 billion of population rate in India, 23.24 crores of vehicles are registered in India and 2.05 crores vehicles have been registered in 2019. The prediction model has been prepared by conducting road traffic survey on Volume count, Spot speed and Noise level for achieving the objective in two locations. This model is developed for each location separately and the Statistical analysis is done.
