Camden sign leads to air pollution enquiries

A warning sign in Camden has led to more enquiries about air pollution.

The LED notice was fitted on the outside wall of Camden Council's offices on Euston Road in June and displays live air quality messages to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians on the road.

These are triggered by hourly measurements of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter, with the signs indicating messages that promote sustainability if the concentrations of the pollutants become low in relation to the government's UK Daily Air Quality Index.

A representative from the council told "We have noticed an increase in air quality related enquiries from residents since we installed the sign."

The spokesperson noted that the work will allow the authority to measure levels of pollutants on the road over the coming years.

A large project is currently taking place in London to research air pollution in the city, with 80 scientists from 11 universities tracking almost 1,000 different gases.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801436822-ADNFCR
