Although the corresponding noise levels were below the trigger values, at which there is a right to appropriate noise protection measures, the city of Kassel wanted improve in the situation.
After careful consideration, the decision was made to build an embankment that combines noise and sight protection, thus offering a significant improvement in the quality of life. As it would have been difficult to implement this voluntary measure with conventional solutions due to the current budgetary situation, the Kassel Environment and Garden Authority tendered an earth wall that was possible to economically construct with substitute building materials.
