Horn Lane pollution back in focus today

Horn Lane pollution July and August 2013

This graph compares PM10 particulate pollution on Horn Lane to the Western Avenue and the Hanger Lane Gyratory since Angie Bray went to visit the Horn Lane goods yard on 12th July to find out first hand why this area is so badly polluted. The picture shows that apart from the fact that the Horn Lane monitoring site was broken down for a couple of weeks in late July and early August Horn Lane is often 4 times worse than these two very busy roads and even spikes up to 6 times.

Today is the first bi-monthly meeting between residents and operators. These meetings were one of the actions coming out of the first session in July. The graph shows that we still have a long way to go.
