The problem of highway traffic noise in conjunction with the noise levels produced by aircraft overflight in the vicinity of a general aviation airport is studied. The Toronto-Buttonville airport has been examined and specific examples to illustrate the influence of surface traffic moving along two arterial roadways, the Queen's Highway No. 7 and the regional road Woodbine Avenue, on the noise levels in the vicinity of the airport.
Based on actual measurements for both air and surface traffic and utilizing predicted increases for the year 1980, the results from both sound sources have been analysed, combined and presented in the form of contour lines using computer programs developed in this study.
