A short trial of the application of dust suppressants will commence shortly. The scale and practical implementation of the dust suppression programme will only be clear after those trials have been completed. Other local measures, such as targeting idling vehicles and redeploying the cleanest buses will be implemented through existing TfL programmes. Further details of the local measurers will be provided in the final version of my Air Quality Strategy, which will be published later in the autumn. *
