There is a rising call for more to be done to see London’s air quality improve. This Public Art project has been funded through the London Mayors Air Quality Fund, to raise the profile and engage with the local community on local air quality. Change requires action by all. Lewisham Council have revised their Air Quality Action Plan and are working closely with the Greater London Authority to continue to bring improvements. Recent improvements have include the introduction of the 20 mph zone throughout Lewisham Highway roads, which is expected to reduce congestion and associated air quality emissions. There needs to be a choice of alternatives to conventional car use when choosing to travel if emissions are to be reduced. Lewisham is increasing its sustainable transport infrastructure, by expanding the electric vehicle charging point network; providing more options for cycling and walker friendly routes, and has recently supported in principle the London Mayor’s Ultra Low Emission Zone expansion to include all roads north of the South Circular, which will be a significant step forward in bringing air quality within acceptable health limits.
