City of Bruges is committed to the further development of a sustainable measurement network throughout the city. In this way, the impact of modal shift and other climate measures on air quality (and also on climate objectives) can be monitored over time. At the same time, the improvement of air quality towards the WHO guideline values can be monitored.
Via traffic counts with smart cameras at a number of selectable mobility nodes, the city monitors the various modes of transport and links these to air quality measurements. Both types of data flow through to an air quality model. In this way, the city arrives at an air quality action plan with actions to improve local air quality in the coming years.
