The cost of the noise barrier

First of all, you should apply for a building permit, for which you will need professionally prepared plans for your project. You may need to hire a structural engineer and a surveyor. Everything together, including building permit fees, can cost more than $ 2,000.

Secondly, carry out earthworks to anchor the noise barrier. There are costs of about EUR 30 per meter if you can not do the work yourself.

The concrete foundation will cost you another 100 EUR per meter. In addition, there is a base, which is priced at about 40 to 60 EUR per meter. On this basis, your noise protection wall is still fixed even in storm.

A noise barrier with sound absorbing effect is available for an approximate price of EUR 500 per meter. Such a fence is a bit more than man-high and reduces the 90 dB of a passing truck to 60 dB.

You may pay less for noise barriers. Calculate for a 3.50 m high wall with a price of about 200 to 400 EUR per meter.
