Mini-Holland vindicated – in Waltham Forest

The study shows that residents of Waltham Forest will gain an average of one month of life from the Mini-Holland and related works in the borough. That leaves a reduced life expectancy of 6 to 10 months from the remaining air pollution which needs to be addressed by more local works, extending the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) to the whole of London, phasing out of diesel and a general reduction in road traffic.

In short, it needs a Green transport policy at local, London and national level.
