Road pollution testing goes ahead next week

In an attempt to provide clear and irrefutable evidence of the unsuitability of the green on Deptford Church Street as a site for Thames Tunnel works, local volunteers will be installing pollution testing tubes from Monday-Friday next week.

Don't Dump on Deptford's Heart are taking part in a large 'civilian' air quality testing project in Deptford and Greenwich – and still need more volunteers to help install the tubes. The tubes are fairly easy to install but need to be done at the right time and recorded properly – and Deptford has 50 tubes to put up. The installation must take place during on a weekday, so volunteers need to be free during the week.

If you'd like to help, please come to the 'briefing' on Sunday 5th January between 11am-2pm at the Pink Palace, Frankham House, Frankham Street. Volunteers will be allotted some tubes and a particular road where they can be installed, along with full instructions on how to do this. Email ddodeptfordh@gmail.com for more information.

Help is being provided by the Network for Clean Air, Greenwich Co-operative Development Agency, Joan Ruddock MP, Crossfields residents and members of Don't Dump on Deptford's Heart and the No To Silvertown Tunnel campaign.
