Answer for Diverting Traffic

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As explained in the Assembly consultation draft of my Air Quality Strategy, detailed assessments of potential options such as temporary traffic diversions and their impacts will be carried out in conjunction with Boroughs. Any study of traffic diversions, required to deal with extreme local air pollution concentrations would have regard to the impacts on local roads.
