Answer for Dust suppressant application at Earls Court

Answered By: 
The Mayor

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 Earls Court varies depending on operational considerations, but Earls Court is generally the fifth corridor to be treated between 01:00 and 05:00.
