Measures have been carefully designed to make it safer to walk and cycle in the area and to stop rat-running traffic from polluting residential streets. The idea is that the planters and bollards, which discourage non-local traffic, will work together with the new School Street at Elsley Primary to create a healthier neighbourhood.
In order to accommodate the COVID-19 testing centre on London Road, we removed the planters at two of the three locations. Due to the increased COVID-19 infection rates and high numbers of emergency calls we arranged the replacement of the lockable bollards with temporary barriers at the restriction on Tokyngton Avenue to enable quicker access for the emergency services.
As part of the programme, we invited national charity, Living Streets, to lead on a period of community engagement from July through to September 2021, allowing residents living in the Healthy Neighbourhood areas to express their views about how they might be affected and to help shape the scheme.
As part of the trial we will be conducting traffic surveys and monitoring air quality throughout the six months. The following tables will be updated with new data as it is collected.

*Please note that these baseline figures are taken from the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory 2016 which provides modelled annual mean concentrations for NO2 at a 20m grid resolution. 2016 is the most recent year for which this data is available for. If a location is situated between two points, an average has been taken. Data available online.
**Measured baseline, annual mean for 2019
**Monthly concentrations are not yet adjusted in accordance to the LLAQM technical guidance and are therefore subject to change. Read more information about air quality data.
