The action plan against noise on major highways does not a priori provide for strengthening protection against noise along the A1. However, it has come to the DP MP Carole Hartmann's attention that many people living near the motorway would like additional measures. Therefore, Carole Hartmann asked the responsible minister if other measures were possible.

« Comme les nuisances sonores causées par le trafic routier, parmi d’autres, ont un impact important sur la santé et le bien-être des personnes qui y sont exposées sur la durée, le gouvernement établit et met à jour régulièrement des plans d’action contre le bruit contenant une cartographie du bruit et des mesures ciblées pour réduire l’exposition des citoyens au bruit environnemental.

Ainsi le projet de plan d’action contre le bruit des grands axes routiers de septembre 2020 définit des zones prioritaires et énumère les actions visées pour les cinq prochaines années. Force est de constater que ces mesures seront réalisées en grande partie en conjonction avec des nouveaux travaux d’infrastructure, tels que la mise à trois voies de l’A3 ou le contournement de Bascharage.

Or, il me revient que de nombreux habitants vivant en proximité d’une autoroute, se plaignent de leur exposition au bruit routier, notamment en ce qui concerne l’A1.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

– Lors de la consultation publique pour l’élaboration du projet de plan d’action, quels ont été les échos recensés par Madame la Ministre de citoyens habitant près d’une autoroute ?

– Madame la Ministre estime-t-elle qu’il serait opportun de mettre en œuvre de manière systématique des mesures anti-bruit le long des tronçons d’autoroute en proximité d’habitations ? »

Operations on intersex children – will they also be banned in Luxembourg?
