Trial of dust suppressants
Question by Murad Qureshi
In answer to my question 184 / 2011 you provided me with a list of roads where the dust suppressant trials are in operation, but ignored my request for a more specific location.
Would you please therefore provide me with detailed maps of the roads / areas included in the trial, showing the exact position to within five yards of where the suppressant is applied?
Answer by Boris Johnson (1st Term)
Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.
Written answer received on 21 December 2011:
A detailed map has been supplied (Appendix C). TfL cannot provide you with the exact position to within five yards as the CMA application varies based on a need to adapt to the conditions along the given corridor e.g. need to avoid parked cars and road works.
To accompany the maps provided, the following is a list of the corridors where dust suppressants are applied.
Marylebone Road and Euston Road (A501) carriage way in both directions from Lisson Grove (B507) to York Way (A5200) at Kings Cross Station.
Victoria Embankment and Upper Thames (A3211) carriage way in both directions, from Northumberland Avenue (A305) through to Tower Hill Minories (A1203).
Park Lane (A402) from Hyde Park Corner to Marble Arch.
The A2 corridor including A2 Old Kent Rd, New Cross Rd and Black heath Rd (A2) from A2208 Rotherhithe New Road, Camberwell to B209, Hyde Vale, Greenwich
Blackwall tunnel approaches (A102) from Shooters Hill Rd A207/A2 to B140, Devas ST, Poplar, not including the tunnel at this point.
