As the festival of Diwali and winter season draw near, Delhi-NCR is gearing up to meet the severe air quality challenge that it faces every year around this time. A Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) has been notified and is already in place – and October 17, 2017 is the day from when Very Poor and Severe categories of GRAP will be imposed till March 15, 2018. This was announced in a press conference by the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority (EPCA), the committee constituted by the Central government following orders passed by the Supreme Court of India in 1998.

Exposure to fine particles is measured using metrics such as mass concentration (MC), number concentration (NC) and surface area concentration (SAC). This study aims to find correlation between the three metrics in outdoor environments of a city – city periphery, city centre and on-road. Simultaneous real-time mass, number and surface area concentration measurements were conducted in these environments. Arithmetic means, peak concentration values, and regression coefficients were determined to find relation between the three metrics.

A R674m Sandton public transport loop, which apparently created 260 000 employment opportunities, was launched by City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba at the Sandton Gautrain station on Tuesda

The Ministry of Transportation says the National Council on Transportation has approved the commencement of a `bicycle riding’ project, as a means of transportation in the Federal Capital Territory

There have been several traffic management measures taken in Delhi, the odd-eve traffic experiment conducted in year 2016 was first of its kind. CPCB took it as an opportunity to explore if there was any significant reduction in ambient noise levels due to restrictions in number plates.

This paper reviews the effectiveness of traffic management strategies (TMS) for mitigating emissions, ambient concentrations, human exposure, and health effects of traffic-related air pollution in urban areas. The objective is to summarize the evidence base for a range of moderate-scale strategies broadly relevant to municipal and regional government decision-making.

Volume of traffic has shot up with over 10 million vehicles on the road while average speed has plunged
