Investment: Air quality is a major concern in London and considerable investment is being made to understand air quality and to how best to improve it through traffic calming, re-routing and other mechanisms.

Scientific/Technical Project Contribution: The project will make two distinct contributions to these investments:

1) We will use RIKS’ Activity Based Metronamica model to better understand daily personal exposure to pollution, taking into account daily travel patterns and demography, and explore how this may change in the future (due to implementation of air pollution mitigation measures and/or demographic changes);

2) we will monitor the net impact of pedestrianising a section of the Strand, a major road in Central London, on air quality and noise in the Strand, Aldwych and surrounding streets using a dense network of new IoT monitors.
