Victoria Road Air Quality Study

Air Quality on Victoria Road - Lefevre Peninsula

The Victoria Road Air Quality Study is a community co-design project being undertaken by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the Environment Protection Authority.

The study will monitor outdoor air to analyse air quality and emissions from traffic on Victoria Road and the surrounding residential areas. It will look at how air quality may vary along the road, how far into the residential areas it goes, and how it may be affected by variations in weather conditions.

An independent facilitator has been appointed to establish a Community Panel and members will be asked to:

  • provide feedback on the information provided by the EPA and Council on air quality monitoring
  • provide input to the placement of air quality monitoring sensors; and
  • consider options for improvements based on the outcomes of the project.

If you would like to speak to us about the study, please contact us on:

  • Phone: (08) 8204 2176
  • Email
  • In person (please make an appointment)

Please see our document library and newsfeed for further information.

    The joint City of Port Adelaide Enfield and Environment Protection Authority’s Victoria Road Air Quality Study Community Panel had their start up meeting on October 30th 2019. This meeting gave the panel a chance to get to know one another and to review the Terms of Reference that will guide their task. The second meeting of the panel took place a week later on the 5 November. During this meeting the panel did a further review of the Terms of Reference before signing off on them.

    The next item on the agenda was an information session on Victoria Road from the EPA technical adviser. The session provided the panel members with road traffic data, how air quality may vary along different sections of the road, how far into the residential areas it may go, and how it may be affected by variations in weather conditions.

    Panel members were asked by the facilitator to propose air monitoring sites for consideration. The proposed sites will now be entered into a table that will allow the panel to measure the sites against a set of criteria.

    During the next meeting, the panel will review the measures with the aim of determining where the air quality monitoring stations will be placed along Victoria Road.

    Please phone us on (08) 8204 2176, email engage.epa@sa.gov.au or visit www.engage.epa.sa.gov.au to keep up with information on the Victoria Road air quality study.
