This section provides information on the air quality monitoring undertaken by the Transport Agency.

Air quality monitoring information is often used in detailed assessments of the effects of state highway projects. A dedicated monitoring campaign may be required for high risk, large projects in locations with a high degree of sensitivity to adverse air quality effects.
Roadside remote sensing is useful for identifying and assessing the key trends that influence the emissions performance of vehicle fleets. Regular monitoring highlights critical or emerging trends that may require future policy interventions.
The impact of road transport on air quality in New Zealand varies locally. The Transport Agency undertakes monthly monitoring, using NO2 passive samplers, at over 120 sites across the state highway network.
TRAMS is the transport-related air quality monitoring system which collates data from the Transport Agency and regional councils. Transport-related air quality monitoring data can be viewed and exported from this section.
