PIHMS New Plymouth

The monitoring site was initiated to assess the impact of increased traffic movement on air quality due to expansion of commercial premises in Bell Block.

The monitoring site was located at the premises of the Pacific International Hotel Management School (PIHMS) situated next to Bell Block bypass. Ambient PM10 monitoring was conducted using a portable data longging TSI 'DustTrak DRX' over a two month period from January to March 2014. The monitoring results was incorporated with traffic data provided by the New Zealand Transport Agency. The data was collected on SH3 at Egmont Road.
