Quantification of measures to improve air quality in Thurrock

Thurrock Council

Air Quality Consultants undertook a study for Thurrock Council under a Defra air quality grant funded project.  The study was designed to devise an appropriate strategy to improve air quality around three junctions where air quality objectives were being exceeded.  It involved detailed air quality modelling around three junctions in Thurrock: Pilgrims Roundabout, Treacle Mine Roundabout and Elizabeth Road/Devonshire Road Roundabout.  A micro-simulation traffic model was combined with an inventory of instantaneous vehicle emissions to predict traffic emissions from the local road network.  Three traffic management options were investigated and compared to the baseline situation.

The general performance of AQC for our project was excellent, and the speed of responses particularly impressive.
