Air quality in central Cambridge is not as good as it should be. The city is not compliant with EU limit values or UK national air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide in the city centre and on busy roads – although it is improving slowly. The City Council's Air Quality Action Plan was approved unanimously at Environment Scrutiny Committee on March 13 and they are now opening it out to consultation (21 June - 18 September 2018). Many of the proposed actions are of interest to Camcycle, but in particular: • Reducing Heavy Goods Vehicles emissions in the city centre by promoting ‘greener’ methods for making deliveries of goods, such as by cycle or electric vehicles • Using planning policies to ensure new communities are designed to make it easy for people to use sustainable modes of transport • Improving public health by providing information about the health impacts of air quality and encouraging everyone to have a more active lifestyle, including walking and cycling

Redbridge council says: The Ilford Garden Junction is located at the junction of the A118 Romford Road and the A406 North Circular Road, adjacent to the River Roding, on the boundary between the boroughs of Newham and Redbridge. The location of the junction is a cavernous and much unloved area with poor air quality which acts as a physical and perceptual barrier to those wishing to walk, cycle and drive between key destinations and across the borough boundary. The London Boroughs of Redbridge and Newham have been awarded funding from the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund. We are proposing to use this money to make a number of changes to the junction to improve the experience of those who are walking or cycling through the junction. We would like to hear your views and suggestions for our proposals at the Ilford Garden Junction.
