Green barrier to reduce noise from Ljubljana airport

A total of 13,000 trees have been planted around the Ljubljana airport to protect the nearby village of Šenčur from noise produced by aircraft, with the campaign concluding on Wednesday by Infrastructure Minister Peter Gašperšič and Šenčur Mayor Ciril Kozjek symbolically planting the last two trees.

 

The green barrier has been planted on an area covering 7.5 hectares and is expected to reduce noise in Šenčur by at least two decibels. The campaign cost Aerodrom Ljubljana around EUR 30,000, while the land for the green barrier was provided by the state free of charge.

 

"We can be satisfied that the planting was concluded and we hope that the forest will grow as soon as possible to the extent that will provide an effective noise barrier," Minister Gašperšič added.
