Noise pollution is recently being recognized as a major health threat to both humans and other animals with the rapid urbanization along with increased vehicular moments resulted in unpredicted rise of noise pollution in the urban environment. This study was aimed to assess traffic noise in selected sites of Chapra District, and the observed noise levels were analyzed for parameters like Leq, Ln, TNI (Traffic Noise Index) and the results thus obtained revealed maximum noise intensity in Chapra town followed by Sonpur and Dighwara sites during the study period.
