Author(s): Laxmi Kant Sharma

This study was carried out to investigate the impact of traffic on the characteristics of heavy metals in roadside soil of Morena, India. Traffic activities are considered as one major sources of heavy metal pollution in roadside soil. The contaminated soil have different soil pH, electrical conductance, moisture content, bulk density, water holding capacity and other physico-chemical properties when compared to natural soil. The presence of heavy metals like Cu, Cr, Fe, Pb, Zn and Mn in the roadside soil was also considerable.
