The Pollution Control Committee, under the National Environment Board, will propose to the Cabinet measures for tackling the problem of dust particle pollution on January 21, which involves other state agencies.

According to its proposal, the Royal Thai Police should limit diesel-engine trucks entering Bangkok inner zone to even-number dates within specified hours in January and February.

The Industrial Works Department should inspect factories generating excessive dust particles and order them to alleviate the situation. 

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration should seek ways to control dust from  construction sites, especially the electric train system. Burning for the purpose of clearing must be strictly banned.

Individuals will be asked to avoid driving their personal cars to work.
