  • Wider gaps between cycle paths and traffic reduce active commuters’ air pollution dose

    Setting cycle and footpaths further back from the road can significantly lower the amount of air pollution that cyclists and pedestrians inhale, suggests new research. While wide gaps are not always practical, the study shows that even small increases in distance could substantially reduce the dose of pollution. ‘Active commuting’ is being promoted in cities across the world. Rather ...
