Caroline pledges to tackle poor air quality in Camden

Caroline Pidgeon was out in the Euston Road area of Camden with Councillor Flick Rea, London Assembly Lib Dem candidate for Barnet and Camden Zack Polanski, and local activists. They were assessing the poor air quality and congestion in the local area. Caroline is passionate about improving London’s air quality.

Caroline said:

“Congestion is not just a huge inconvenience but also damaging to people’s health. It creates a huge economic bill for businesses due to delays, longer delivery times and staff arriving late for work

Now more than ever we need to face up to the implications of London’s growing population and that must mean using the Congestion Charge in a far smarter way.

Tackling London’s air pollution must also mean tough action against diesel vehicles. Using the Congestion Charge to deter diesel vehicles from central London in places like Camden could be a game changer in tackling air pollution in London.”
