Air and noise pollution from the urban supply chain is a crucial issue for any site and its surrounding community. As we wrote about recently, noise pollution can be detrimental to health and quality of life.
EMSOL is working with Cross River Partnership to monitor changes in terms of quiet streets and cleaner air. The Freight Noise Monitoring Study, part of the Central London Sub-Regional Transport Partnership, has begun in partnering with EMSOL. EMSOL is providing innovative noise monitoring technology at the test site in London.
Cross River Partnership are currently recruiting businesses to take part in the study, with a range of different sectors and vehicles to be involved. The study will be the first of it’s kind, focusing on monitoring of delivery points and helping landowners, freight operators and local authorities to test best practice in relation to quiet deliveries. The study will collect data through a two-month period and conclude in a report. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more information in the coming months!
