Here are images of Dust Pollution that our team took today. This was morning time at 08:00AM . As work on Delhi-Meerut Expressway comes to an end the total amount of Dust and Pollution kicked up is immeasurable. The localities around NH24 have suffered the effects of this for more than a year now.

As it is, in Delhi around 35% of Pollution is due to Road Dust ( as per a study by IIT, Kanpur). A whopping 131 tonnes of road dust is generated each day in Delhi itself.
The amount of Dust and PM2.5 particles kicked up into the surrounding air by under-construction highways and roadways like National Highway 24 is overwhelming.
Delhi – Meerut Expressway will be inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi early morning 27th May 2018. The surrounding areas like I.P. Extension, Mayur Vihar may get some relief as the work is almost finished. But the story for localities along the way where construction is yet to begin is far from over. Breathe clean with Clenare Nasal Filters and stay safe.
