Urban noise pollution has been a steadily growing problem for developing countries. Urban growth is accompanied by increased highway traffic which is a major contributor to noise pollution. Control laws and management rarely accompany the noise pollution : M Vaziri. Today, it is a common ascertainment that runoff from the urban and the highway road network consists a non-point source pollution which contributes to the degradation of .

HUES was initiated by Professor Ron Hamilton at Middlesex Polytechnic (now University) in the early s and had the title "Highway Pollution". The initial aim was to measure and assess challenges in highway pollution, with a strong emphasis on urban photochemical smog, ozone formation and particle release. Construction Impacts On The Environment: Strategies For Improvement Pavement construction practice has changed significantly over the last several decades. Utilizing new technologies have resulted in improving pavement quality and construction efficiency while .
