Mayor of London Helps Local Assembly Member to Tackle London’s Silent Killer

Mayor of London Helps Local Assembly Member to Tackle London’s Silent Killer

| by Editor | Posted in Balham News

Local Labour London Assembly Member Leonie Cooper joined the Mayor of London on Putney High Street today to launch the first of a series of ‘Low Emission Bus Zones’. These zones will prioritise putting the greenest buses on the most polluted routes, and are just one part of the Mayor’s wide-ranging plans to tackle the capital’s toxic air.

The new greener buses are a combination of hybrid and ‘clean’ buses, which meet or exceed Euro VI standards. The Low Emission Bus Zones are expected to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions from buses along the routes by around 84%. There are 172 schools located within 100 metres of the new zones, meaning thousands of school children will benefit.

This ‘Low Emission Bus Zone’ is the first of 12 planned zones across the city outside of Central London and just one of the initiatives being implemented by the Mayor to clean up London’s toxic air.

Earlier this week, a motion proposed by Ms Cooper - which supported a diesel scrappage scheme but highlighted the importance of using alternative transport as opposed to returning to petrol - was passed 17 votes to 0 by the London Assembly.
