Answered By: 
The Mayor

Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA or dust suppressant) is applied daily. CMA is applied between 21:00 and 06:00 when London's roads are quietest. The actual time that the central London vehicle operates along Park Lane varies depending on operational considerations, but Park Lane is generally the second corridor to be treated between 22:00 and 02:00.
