Answer for Worst spot for Nitrogen Dioxide

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Rather than identifying a single "worse spot" my officials have used the outputs of the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory to identify 187 air quality focus areas where high concentrations of air pollution coincide with high levels of potential human exposure. A list of the areas as well as the methodology used for identifying them is available on the GLA website at: http://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/Cleaner%20Air%20for%20London%20-%20AQ%20Focus%20Area%20methodology.pdf
