Local measures for tackling poor air quality

We have identified number of actions that could help to improve air quality in local areas, and are considering testing these measures in the following corridors:

  1. Marylebone Road and Euston Road
  2. Victoria Embankment through Upper Thames Street to Tower Hill
  3. Marble Arch to Hyde Park Corner

You can read more about this in the strategy in the 'PM10 local Measures' section of the strategy document (Policy 3).

The final strategy was launched in autumn 2010.
