Toxic air pollution - call for action -
We continue to report that the pollution " It causes major disruption for local residents as the coaches run 24/7 and are noisy and polluting. The engines run for the entire duration of their stop, up to 15 mins, with < 6 coaches/hr causing increased NO2 pollution to nearby residents."
WCC https://www.westminster.gov.uk/ sites/ default/ files/ air_quality_manifesto_2018_0.pdf manifesto suggests
"What can you do? Get in touch. Let us know if you want to help in monitoring air quality in your area. We will be introducing a new ‘community monitoring framework’ this summer so you can monitor air quality in your own area. We will help you with obtaining the most suitable equipment, understanding the results, and developing local projects to reduce pollution." & "In Westminster, we monitor air pollution in a number of ways, from long-term fixed monitors by our roadsides to smaller monitors aimed at managing dust produced at construction sites. We have also led the way in testing out new methods of monitoring. Earlier this year, we conducted personal exposure monitoring for pedestrians in the Marylebone Low Emission Neighbourhood using a ‘backpack monitor’ in partnership with King’s College London."
