The aim of the methodology is to unify procedures for the implementation and evaluation of air quality monitoring in order to provide objective information about the actual state and development of air quality in areas with intensive traffic. It summarizes the requirements for air quality monitoring defined by legislation and at the same time defines pollutants, the very important source of which is transport, and which should be monitored when evaluating the impact of transport on air quality, i.e. nitrogen dioxide, (nano)particles, benzene, possibly platinum metals and benzo[a]pyrene.

The methodology can serve the Ministry of Transport, road owners or theirs
administrators as an effective tool for controlling both long-term monitoring and indicative ambulatory measurements of air quality in the vicinity of roads. At the same time, it will be used by measurement processors and organizations providing their own air quality measurements, providing them with a standardized procedure to ensure a precise assessment of air quality based on real data. The methodology will also contribute to deepening the knowledge of the employees of all the mentioned institutions and provide a standardized procedure to which, for example, public procurement contractors in the given area will be able to refer.
