Excessive noise pollution in Lahore rings alarm

Lahore, Sep 21 (TIWN) The noise pollution level in Lahore has crossed the World Health Organisations (WHO) acceptable threshold of 60-65 dB in various areas of the city as well as across Pakistan's Punjab province, a media report said.

Residents of various areas in Lahore, particularly dense residential and commercial areas have suffered owing to the escalating noise pollution levels.  In comparison to other pollutants, noise pollution has received lesser importance as a health risk around the country. In July 2013, the EPD through the ‘Punjab Environment Quality Standards for Noise’ notified a limit for sound pressure.
