It's time to take action on Pimlico's toxic air

Pimlico & St James's Labour Action Team has launched a petition asking Sadiq Khan and Westminster Council to put Vauxhall Bridge Road at the top of their air pollution hit lists.

London notoriously took just five days to breach its 2017 air pollution limit - and Westminster was recently named one of its worst three boroughs for killer pollution.

And within Westminster, one of the worst air pollution blackspots is Vauxhall Bridge Road.

Vauxhall Bridge Road has exceptional levels of traffic, as it's part of the London ring road and a boundary to the congestion charge zone. It is also a high-density residential area where many vulnerable people live - including children and the elderly - and numerous schools are within half a mile of the road. Families live overlooking major areas of traffic congestion, while other local residents cross it regularly throughout the day to access shops, schools and local buses and Tubes.

Local residents have been telling us how air pollution from this busy road is affecting their lives on an almost daily basis. As a result, our Pimlico & St James's branch are taking action. Please sign and share our clean air petition, asking Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Westminster City Council to put toxic Vauxhall Bridge Road top of their London air pollution hit lists.
