Where is air pollution peaking in Brussels?
The busy roads turn orange and red, highlighting the relation between air pollution and road traffic. This map shows only the annual average. It does not gives us the detail about the significant differences between streets and moments with dense or low traffic. The World Health Organisation recommends limit values of 10µg/m3 for fine dust (PM2.5) and 40µg/m3 for NOx. Some other cities in Europe managed meanwhile to reduce the negative health impacts of road transport. In Brussels, this is possible too, if we take the right smart measures.
