Question

Together with four local resident associations in Brent we have been pursing with TfL the possibility of introducing a 'clean bus corridor' and other measures to drive down the level of toxic air pollution on this road. Will you please help us with our joint endeavour to progress the matter speedily with TfL?

It is imperative we improve London's air quality as soon as possible. I have made it clear TfL should lead by example and I will shortly be consulting on a series of proposals to clean up the bus fleet beyond the Ultra Low Emission Zone. This will include clean bus corridors - which will tackle the worst pollution hotspots by concentrating cleaner buses on the dirtiest routes - and I will ensure Chamberlayne Road is assessed as part of this work.
