“It was ensured that all construction material used at site are covered; regular water sprinkling around the site to minimise dust; usage of green nets for scaffolding the construction area to prevent dispersion of dust particles, wind breaking walls of 10 m height all around the periphery of the construction site, among others,” government sources said and added, “Further, there was installation of ‘Sensor based Air Monitoring Units (AMU)’ to monitor real time ambient air quality. ”
