Speed table is an artificial road (street) surface irregularity, which is used to reduce speed of road traffic or maintain allowed speed limit in road (street) section. These measures are used to reduce risk for pedestrians by reducing speed of passing vehicles. Before speed table, vehicles usually reduce speed, after passing it, vehicles usually increase their speed and this could increase traffic noise. Measurements were carried out during the day time in L. Asanavičiūtės Street 5, Vilnius. Measurements were divided into two parts, inside the residential apartment building and in its environment. Near the speed table recorded sound level was 69 dB, inside the residential apartment building noise level was approximately 41 dB. In this paper speed table influence on traffic noise propagation in residential area is investigated.
