HS2 construction makes air pollution worse

11 January, 2018

• REMEMBER St James Gardens in Camden… It gave shade and oxygen, and peace of mind amid a polluted bustling city.

Because of HS2 Ltd, it is no longer. Most of the mature trees there are axed, with graves to be exhumed. Where will HS2 Ltd give Londoners a replacement wooded garden… in good will and fair-ness, adjacent to their safe guarding zone and above their tunnel?

It could work if HS2 Ltd were to reimburse Fairview, the developer of non-affordable housing NW1. Just think about it. A cleaner air oasis in London’s highly polluted Camden borough.

Air pollution is made worse by the construction of HS2.
