  • Beating flemish traffic queues

    Many employees live a long way from their workplace. The complex daily operation of getting to and from work - with the car playing a central role - is like the painstaking daily rehearsal of a classical danser. Every day the 2.5 million inhabitants of the Flemish region who commute contribute to increasing pollution, road accidents, and traffic jams. About 70% of these journeys are made by car. ...

  • Traffic pollution in France

    The eco-pastille, one of the first measures proposed at the national environment review which brought together government and environmental associations, will be fully implemented on 1 January 2008. The eco-pastille is a points system which can save consumers up to 5,300 euros if they buy an electric car (bonus of 5,000 euros) and scrap their old car (an extra 300 euros). On the other hand it ...


  • Low emission zones may need complementary local traffic policies

    Low emission zones (LEZs) that restrict old vehicles in city centres may need implementation in combination with other traffic policies to have greater impacts on air quality, according to new research. A study that measured emission levels before and after the introduction of LEZs in five Dutch cities indicated that air pollution concentrations were reduced but not to a statistically significant ...

  • Air traffic management to balance CO2 emissions and noise pollution

    Speed constraints for aircraft are put in place, at some airports, to minimise noise pollution in local areas, however, such practices can be very fuel-inefficient. New research has now shown that relaxing departure speed limits could substantially reduce CO2 emissions, while maintaining acceptable noise levels. The aviation industry is a major contributor to emissions of greenhouse ...

  • Harmful traffic pollution falls within Munich low emission zone

    Low emissions zones (LEZs) can substantially reduce local levels of traffic-based air pollution, a new study has shown. Monitoring air pollution in Munich, Germany, researchers found that particulate matter from traffic sources dropped by 60% after implementation of an LEZ. Traffic exhaust is a major source of fine particulate matter, a type of air pollution that has been linked to respiratory ...

  • Childhood obesity linked to traffic pollution

    Traffic pollution contributes to childhood obesity, a recent study concludes. In the US investigation of over 4 500 children, the researchers estimated that air pollution increased the body mass index (BMI) of 10-year olds in the most polluted areas of study by 0.4 units, compared to those in the least polluted areas. It is thought that pollution may have slowed the children’s metabolism. ...

  • CARBOTRAF – Black Carbon reduction by traffic management

    CARBOTRAF is a Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission. Lasting for three years, the project will study the relationship between traffic flow, Black Carbon (BC) emissions and carbon dioxide in urban environments. The project aims to create a method, system and tools for adaptively influencing traffic flow in real-time to reduce CO2 and BC emissions caused by road ...

  • Commission finally tackles problem of traffic noise

    Traffic noise has suddenly moved up the EU agenda, with the Commission promising to cut noise from cars, vans, buses and lorries within five years. A proposal due later this year is expected to seek to reduce car noise by four decibels and lorry noise by three. The issue of noise has lagged behind EU efforts to cut air pollutant emissions, but a recent study suggesting that the benefits of ...

  • SwRI Demonstrates Traffic Management to Minimize Environmental Impacts

    Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) is collecting and communicating real-time vehicle emissions data to demonstrate new concepts in environment-based traffic management as ...

  • Traffic pollution hotspots to be revealed ‘live’ in London

    A pioneering network of sensors could make the traffic build-ups that cause pollution hotspots a thing of the past. The ‘Pioneers 09’ showcase event on March 4th will be the first time that real-time data from the network has gone on public display. ‘Pioneers 09’ is being held at the Olympia Conference Centre in London and organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council ...

  • MEPs back law to curb harmful traffic noise

    Noise limits for cars will be tightened to protect public health, under new rules informally agreed with EU ministers and endorsed by Parliament on Wednesday. The new law requires the introduction of labels to inform buyers of the noise levels of new cars, as well as the addition of sound to hybrid and electric vehicles to alert pedestrians. Persistent exposure to high levels of traffic ...

  • Traffic noise to become quieter thanks to UN-backed advance

    Road traffic should get quieter in the near future, thanks to a new procedure for measuring noise in vehicles, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The new test, known as the Additional Sound Emissions Provisions (ASEP), is currently under development by the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations, which is managed by the UNECE. “ASEP is a ...

  • Industry calls for airspace change to allow massive traffic growth

    The aviation industry has today launched a campaign calling for Government to commit to airspace modernisation to facilitate a huge increase in the number of flights in UK airspace. The coalition of airports, airlines and air navigation providers, led by NATS, expects flights to increase from 2 million a year ...

  • Traffic pollution still harmful to health in many parts of Europe

    Transport in Europe is responsible for damaging levels of air pollutants and a quarter of EU greenhouse gas emissions. Many of the resulting environmental problems can be addressed by stepping up efforts to meet new EU targets, according to the latest report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The EEA’s ...

  • Traffic pollution associated with risk of developing type 2 diabetes

    Long-term exposure to traffic-related air particle pollution is linked with type 2 diabetes, a new study in Germany has found. Furthermore, the study found that people living close to busy roads were at greater risk of developing the disease than those living further away. Air pollution has been linked to a number of health problems, including heart, circulatory and lung diseases. It has also ...
