Policy makers need to be properly informed on the likely impacts of the transport management measures and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) that are implemented to reduce air pollution and avoid congestion.

This presentation contains relevant information on the CONDUITS projects’goals and objectives, describing the set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that inform decision-makers about the effects of their measures.

Researchers have explored the influence of indicators in transport policy in two case studies at the EU and Member State levels. In both cases indicators were widely used, however, this did not always translate into direct influence on policies.

Moose avoid roads during day when human activity is highest, new research suggests. Monitoring moose movements in Sweden, researchers have found that the probability of moose being near roads drops after 06:00 and only rises again at approximately 18:00.

The promotion of diesel-fuelled cars in Europe may not have had the beneficial environmental effects that were expected, research suggests.

Digital noise maps developed under the EU’s Environmental Noise Directive (END) are a useful way of assessing traffic noise exposure for local residents, according to a recent Swedish study.

House sparrows have the potential to become indicators of air quality, according to a recent Spanish study. The researchers demonstrated that small blood samples taken from the sparrows varied significantly depending on pollution levels in the birds’ habitat.

Two tagged Cuvier's beaked whales have shown intense and lasting avoidance behaviours in response to military sonar. In the first study of this kind, the whales showed significant responses to sonar at volumes that are currently assumed in the US to have no effect on behaviour.
