Public Health England publish review to improve outdoor air quality and public health

View original

Public Health England has published a review of interventions to improve outdoor air quality and public health. One of the main recommendations is for local authorities to implement no-idling zones in vulnerable hotspots such as schools, hospitals and care homes. The report also supports the wider roll out of low emission or clean air zones to discourage high polluting vehicles from entering town and city centres. Although air quality policy is a devolved issue, Public Health England argues that there should be a more collaborative approach in producing a UK-wide strategy as well as greater overall investment in clean public transport as well as the promotion of active travel.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
