Site Description

The Parson Street School monitoring site has been operating since February 1999 and was selected as a roadside site that represents a residential area in which people could be exposed to high concentrations of traffic generated pollution. The sample inlet is approximately 1 metre from ground level and three metres from the kerb of Bedminster Road, where traffic queues for the traffic lights at the junction of Parson Street and Bedminster Road. Because idling vehicles are close to the monitor, high concentrations of NOx and NO2 are recorded here. The location of the site is representative of residential exposure in this area.
