There would be small improvements in pollutant concentrations along A225, A296, A226, and A296. On the M25 corridor itself, there are predicted to be larger improvements in air pollutant concentrations due to a reduction in congestion.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Development Consent Order application for LTC, Highways England are preparing an Environmental Statement which will include a detailed air quality assessment, to identify the effects and any mitigation measures required. The results of this detailed assessment will be fully reported within the Environmental Statement.</p><p> </p>
