What London transport prices are doing for Mother Nature
Its annual average for last year was 125 micrograms of NO2 per cubic metre, over three times the limit of 40µg/m3. Brixton Road recorded 117µg/m3 and Marylebone Road was more than double the limit.
London has been named the most expensive city to commute in. With an average of £135 per month, it beats Dublin and New York City in terms of travel.
With rising prices of travel in Central London, it is no surprise that people are investing in cars. The fuels and emissions of the cars, especially in parts with heavy traffic, have become a threat to living in this city.
These cars pollute areas: (from highest to lowest)
- Wandsworth – Putney High Street
- Lambeth – Brixton Road
- Westminster – Strand (Northbank BID)
- Wandsworth – Putney High Street Facade
- City of London – Walbrook Wharf
- Westminster – Marylebone Road

- Westminster – Oxford Street
