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.
