A recent study has shown that, the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) that was launched in May 2018 has brought down vehicular pollution by 7%.
This study was conducted by the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), on behalf of the Delhi government’s environment department.
A senior official said that the results of the latest study show that while levels of nitrogen dioxide has shot up by 7% along EPE the level of carbon monoxide has increased by 2.5%. This level has also gone up 0.9% along the EPE because of increased vehicular activities after the expressway was open in May 2018.
