Camden’s air is highly polluted. Won’t the measures result in the air quality improving?


It is to be expected that reducing vehicular access on Tavistock Place would result in less pollution. However, this hasn’t made the air quality in Camden better as a whole.

By diverting the traffic along neighbouring roads, including to major transport arteries, the pollution and concentration of poisonous gases in those roads has increased. The threat presented to residents in those surrounding streets has been heightened.

Sadly, this data is not being monitored by Camden Council.
