The Wei Wai Kum First Nation Reserve in urban Campbell River, BC, is bordered by busy Highway 19A as it passes through this small, picturesque city on the east coast of Vancouver Island.
The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure recently undertook a project to add a an 800 m sound barrier wall along the highway to protect the residents from traffic noise. Our lightweight PVC AIL Sound Walls (Tuf-Barrier, Reflective) were selected for this project.
Highway noise barrier wall constructed in two phases
Due to the Ministry’s budgets, the project was undertaken in two phases or sections. Theses images are from the first phase of 430 m. The second phase will soon be underway.
AIL Sound Walls are perfect for highway noise barriers
With their lighter weight, lower installed costs and long-term durability, AIL Sound Walls are a perfect choice to keep the peace in neighbourhoods along busy transportation corridors. These sound barriers can be installed easily on narrow roadside job sites and are an efficient land use solution in urban areas. They can also be structure-mounted to bridge parapets, crash barriers and retaining walls.
