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 south London vehicle operates along the A2 corridor varies depending on operational considerations, but the A2 corridor is generally the first corridor to be treated between 23:00 and 01:00.
