In Korea, air pollutants caused by mobile sources constitute a large portion of the total contaminants, and carbon dioxide (CO2) makes up the largest majority of greenhouse gas. There is a need to establish an integrated policy of urban and transportation planning for the reduction in carbon emissions. In this regard, this study provides plenty of evaluation data of air pollution near roads that enable to support the policy decision-making process. To this end, the comprehensive air quality index, time value loss costs and environmental costs were set as key indicators of carbon-based road performance evaluation, and GIS-based prototype was developed. The major findings of this study are expected to be applied to the test-bed and thus utilized as data for decision making in establishment of relevant policies.
