Abstract

The South-East Queensland (SEQ) region is one of the fastest growing areas in Australia. This rapid growth and the accompanying increase in vehicle kilometres travelled has brought demand for management methods to deal with air pollution. This paper reports on a methodology being developed to estimate the likely level of particulate emissions from specific transport proposals. Two main areas are dealt with, namely: 1. on-road measurements of vehicle emissions; and 2. developing, testing and verifying models to estimate particulate emissions. The paper identifies the need for a particulate emissions model through a review of current modelling practice. It examines the development of monitoring techniques for South-East Queensland and how this data will be utilised for the development of an emissions inv
