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.

• Earls Court rd (A3220) from south A308 Kings rd to north A4 Cromwell road & A4 Cromwell rd running from Warwick road to Knightsbridge
