Anti-noise pollution work undertaken in Valencia

The Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo is being subjected to a new set of works to limit noise pollution levels produced by the facilities. A million-dollar investment will improve the Western Red Grandstand of the circuit and will also see the installation of sound-absorbent panels throughout the stands.

An evaluation of the circuit was carried out to discover how best to reduce noise in the areas surrounding the track, with barriers being the first solution to muffling excess noise.

The duration of the work is estimated at 4 months, meaning that the track will be ready in time for the Gran Premio bwin.com de la Comunitat Valenciana.

The capacity of the Western grandstand will be increased by 5,000. Circuit Director General Eduardo Nogues stated that the team "have worked hard for months to alleviate the inconveniences that the Circuit can occasionally cause, alongside the Sports Secretary, the Cheste Council and the affected citizens. We are all in agreement that there will have to be improvements for the comfort of those living in Cheste."
