Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA or dust suppressant) is applied daily. CMA is only applied between 21:00 and 06:00 when London's roads are quietest. The actual time that the central London vehicle operates along Marylebone/ Euston road varies depending on operational considerations, but it is generally the first corridor to be treated between 21:00 and 01:00.
