Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova manages environmental issues related to the noise caused by the vehicular traffic of its network applying the procedures detailed by current national and Community legislation.

According to the provisions of the Framework Law n. 447 of 1995 and the DMA 29 January 2000, Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova in 2006 identified the critical acoustics areas, ie the living areas facing its network where it may be necessary to mitigate the levels of noise pollution, giving detailed information through a report sent to all interested bodies.

Following this activity, in 2008, a noise reduction and abatement plan, called PICAR, was prepared, specifying the type, costs and timing of the mitigation measures envisaged in the aforementioned critical noise areas: this plan, currently being applied, is periodically updated every five years.

To complete the activities envisaged by national legislation, Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova is also committed to monitoring the environmental status of its network and verifying the implementation of PICAR through the actions envisaged in the Community legislation, implemented in Italy by Legislative Decree n. 194 of 2005: the last acoustic mapping * was carried out in 2017, while the last update of the action plan * was carried out in 2018.

Information to the public, required by article 8 of Legislative Decree no. 194/2005, is carried out through the publication of a summary report * and by thematic maps showing respectively the distribution of traffic noise on the territory surrounding the motorway (TAV A4; TAV A31) *, during the day and the night period, and the position of all the interventions foreseen in the PICAR.
