The objective of the study was to determine what can be done to improve living conditions in dwellings adversely affected but not directly required for the construction of motorways. The sites chosen for the study were fairly typical of the type of residential property likely to be met in the vicinity of motorways and which would justify efforts at remedial treatment. Until now there has been relatively little practical knowledge on which to base such decisions, but by carrying out 'before' and 'after' social and scientific surveys, appropriate levels of local, physical reinstatement can be determined. The sites selected for study were two council housing estates, wormholt estate, hammersmith alongside westway; coventry cross estate and tweed house, tower hamlets alongside the blackwall tunnel northern approach. This first study report provides A description of the surveys carried out at these sites. A second study report will be produced at a future date dealing with the remedial treatment and the subsequent after survey. /TRRL/
