Traffic noise can be a major nuisance, particularly in residential areas. Road traffic noise is the most significant source of environmental noise pollution. Exposure to noise pollution contributes to negative impact on the environment particularly to human. Therefore, in order to overcome this problem, the development of models that can predict the traffic noise is necessary. The aim of this study is to develop models of traffic noise at suburban residential areas along FT50 Federal Route. This study is carried out at Taman Kelisa, Taman Gading and Taman Gading 1. A total of 42 data in each residential area are used to analyze the noise level and the relationship with other traffic parameters. In this study, traffic noise models are clustered into three groups of variables. In summary, most predictors in this study affect the level of noise at study locations. Cluster 2 shows the most reliable model since the adjusted R-squared is the highest with 60.7 percent. The developed models can be hopefully utilized for traffic noise prediction in the future for suburban residential areas.
