Smog moves west as Sydney grows

Smog levels are down over inner Sydney, but the outlook in the expanding western suburbs is causing much concern, particularly in the Hawkesbury Basin, Parramatta River Valley and Liverpool Basin.

However, lowering nitrogen oxide levels will be a far more difficult strategy than existing pollution controls.
