Rate this item
(2 votes)

For the last two years LOSRA has been campaigning for the installation of an air quality monitoring station to be installed at this location so we are naturally delighted to receive the following press release from Spelthorne Council:

“Spelthorne Borough Council has commissioned environmental consultants Ricardo-AEA to reinstall an air quality monitoring station near Sunbury Cross for an initial period of 12-months.

“The monitoring station, which has been funded jointly by Spelthorne Council and Heathrow, will contain equipment that continuously measures levels of the common pollutants emitted by vehicles.

“The monitoring station complements the ten diffusion tubes measuring Nitrogen Dioxide in and around the Sunbury Cross area. The information will help the Council understand how pollutants behave and their relationship with the weather and enable it to make informed policy decisions. The monitoring results will be uploaded in real time to the Heathrow Airwatch website http://www.heathrowairwatch.org.uk/ so anyone who is interested will be able to view and download the data.

“The data collected from the monitoring station will be compared to results collected previously. Its continued use will be reviewed after the 12-month period”.
