The conditions of acoustic wave formation under urban development within traffic roundabouts are considered on the example of Izhevsk. The article refers to 5 single-level road interchanges, and provides the results of multiple acoustic measurements of the equivalent sound pressure level. The observations covered a different time range, typical for the daytime period. The average values vary from 66 to 68 dBA, and the maximum values range from 67 to 69 dBA. Based on the simulation results,

The variation was from 50 to 75 meters at averaged values of flows intensity (up to 1500 u / h) and from 60 to 110 meters at high intensity (up to 2000 u / h). The conclusion is made about the favorability of roundabouts from the position of noise comfort in comparison with traditional intersections equipped with traffic lights. The effectiveness of such measures is 2-3 dB.
