Plans to tackle air pollution 'hotspot' in Lewes

May 29 2009

Plans are in place to improve air quality around a notorious traffic hotspot in Lewes.

According to the West Sussex County Times, the level of traffic around Station Street and Fisher Street means they are among the worst places in terms of air pollution in the country.

A 28-point plan has now been developed by Lewes District Council's environment health department to tackle the problem.

"Key schemes (include) the reprioritisation of the junction with Fisher Street/West Street to enable traffic to flow more smoothly and reduce congestion along Fisher Street and Station Street," a report compiled by local officials stated.

In related news, a statement published by the Liberal Democrats recently revealed that air pollution kills around 24,000 Britons every year, with 4,400 dying in London alone.

The party is calling on the government to improve air quality before the 2012 Olympic Games commence.
