We want Transport for London (TfL) to use clean air buses on all the bus routes that run through Brixton Road and Streatham High Road.

Brixton Road has the worst recorded air quality in London.  The annual limit on NO2 recommended levels was breached after only three weeks of this year.  Gas guzzling London buses are the primary cause of this poor air quality which affects the lives of Lambeth residents. Public Health England has estimated that 112 deaths a year are connected to poor air quality in Lambeth.  We need TfL to clean up the buses so we can clean up our air quality.

Lambeth is a borough where major bus routes and high numbers of taxis contribute significantly to the pollution levels. Brixton Road is a TfL road which carries the highest number of buses and taxis in the borough, and Streatham High Road is not far behind.  We call on the Mayor of London to use retro-fitted, clean buses on these roads to protect the people that use them every day.

We are neglected by tube and train services in South London and depend on buses more than anywhere else – why shouldn’t we have the best ones?
