"How polluted is my road?" (Not to mention Brent Cross and the North Circular Road.)

"You can use this map to see the levels of pollutants emitted by vehicles on different stretches of road in London. Pan around the map, or put in your postcode, to find where you live, work or study. Click on any section of road to see the exact quantities of pollution emitted each year, and the numbers of vehicles that travel on that stretch of road every day."

Are there more than 10,000 vehicles a day?

"Scientific research suggests that living near roads travelled by more than 10,000 vehicles per day could be responsible for some 15-30% of all new cases of asthma in children, and a similar proportion of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and CHD (coronary heart disease) cases in adults 65 years of age and older.

"If you click on a section of road you'll see lots of detailed information on the pollutants, plus the number of vehicle movements per day."

"In the example above, you can see that these people in Brent are living right alongside a section of the North Circular with over 62,000 vehicle movements a day!"
