In Copenhagen, there has been measured a high concentration of PM10 and NO2. The PM10 concentration value occasionally reached the recommended values. However, the concentration of NO2 exceeded the recommended values by 14 μg/m3 in 2011. The noise levels recorded on Amagerbrogade also exceeded the recommended value, of 58 dB, by 17 dB. It was recorded as being above 75 dB in average during the day. Air and noise pollution are the cause of several different health risks including different cancerous developments, increase in blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases. The pollution primarily originates from the exhaust of motorised vehicles. The municipality of Copenhagen, has throughout the past 12 years, been discussing possible changes for the Amager region. Their solutions do not solve the problems of noise and air pollution on Amagerbrogade. However a design approach where all motorised vehicles are removed from the street would solve the problem. The removal of all motorised vehicle traffic would not help the businesses on Amagerbrogade, therefore, it could be preferable to substitute the public busses of Amagerbrogade with another type of public transportation, in this case a monorail. The monorail is less noisy than bus and they do not directly emit any polluting particles.
