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 Victoria Embankment / Upper Thames Street varies depending on operational considerations, but Victoria Embankment / Upper Thames Street is generally the fourth corridor to be treated between 00:00 and 03:00.
