Brixton air pollution
I met a lovely lady standing by one of those big black metal cabinets just along Brixton Road.
Turned out she is a researcher from King s College and in that box there are various machinery used to measure air pollution.
I was a bit surprised when she told me that according to data collected by King s College that streach of road is the most polluted in London even more than Oxford Street. She directed me to King s College website for more precise data. https://www.londonair.org.uk/LondonAir/Default.aspx
I also find this article apparently already by ' 30 January, Brixton Road in south London reached its annual legal limit for toxic nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – less than a month into the year. It breached the limit two days later.' Full article here
I ve to say I did not expect this at all, does anyone know if and what steps have been taken to reduce air pollution in this area.
The reaearcher was saying something about a switch to greener busses?
