Abstract: This research reflects on the impacts of traffic factors, car acceleration, volume of traffic, road gradient and the resulting sum of air pollutants, with a significant impact on the emissions of the vehicles. The general and detailed urban plans are normally addressed to these factors. Such considerations usually determine the adverse effects of motor vehicles, and environmental hazards, such as air pollution and vibration, which affects highways and bridges. However, the effect of road transport and preparation on the ecosystem is described. The research focuses on climate aspects that can be identified and designed so that all generic proposals can include them. In this study, CO, NO2 , TVOC’s and SO2 concentration at multiple sampling sites were screened regularly. The study revealed that air pollutant rates are highly correlated with traffic movement and prevailing gradients. The SO2 , NO2 , CO and TVOC’s concentrations were very much associated to significant road flow parameters such as traffic elevation, intensity and amount of transport.
Keywords: Transport, emission, pollutant, gradient, speed, traffic volume, road gradient
