A timely reminder that the petition closes on 4th November, so there is only one week left to sign.
QPARA is working with the three other residents’ associations of Queen’s Park Ward on a campaign to secure more low emission hybrid buses on the bus routes along Chamberlayne Road to help tackle dangerous levels of air pollution that are damaging our health.
Transport for London currently operates 13,800 bus services weekly on Chamberlayne road, the majority of which are powered by diesel engines. These buses account for around a quarter of nitrogen dioxide emissions on Chamberlayne Road, which frequently exceed legal limits. This affects the air quality across Queen’s Park.
Sign the petition for cleaner, greener buses along Chamberlayne Road at the QPARA tent tomorrow!
We had a presentation on Air Quality from Client Earth at the QPARA meeting on Thursday. The Mayor of London’s Breathe Better Together web page summarises information on how air quality affects us and what we can do to better protect ourselves: www.london.gov.uk/prior…/environment/breathe-better-together
