Abstract

This paper will present findings from the EPSRC funded research project (GR/J50613), "Effects of the street grid configuration on pedestrian exposure to vehicular pollution: civilising urban traffic". The project has developed a monitoring instrument the Street Box, which can be used to measure Carbon Monoxide (CO), wind speed, temperature, humidity, and light. This Street Box is being used to measure urban pollution at head height in several, closely situated streets. This paper includes a detailed examination of data gathered from several Street Boxes sited in a small area of central London near to Huston station. The effect of different variables on CO concentration is considered and a possible methodology for enabling more accurate estimates of pedestrian exposure to
