Transport Measures to meet NAQS Objectives

The development and implementation of a research on the cost and impact of different transport measures in Great Britain was designed to reduce emissions from road traffic which was completed by W.S. Atkins. It indicates the effectiveness of combining demand management and emission control measures in reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulates. The research estimated and compared the percentage and levels of emissions reduced from varying demand management strategies. But it was proposed that road user charging and parking restraint be implemented alongside demand management strategies and improvements in public transport. Furthermore, the research highlighted the use of low emission vehicles powered by alternative fuels such as Liquefied Petroleum Gas or Compressed Natural Gas to lower emissions. The research was part of the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions' wider assessment action required to meet emission reduction targets.
