We are very pleased to welcome the London Borough of Lambeth back to the London Air Quality Network.
Lambeth's three monitoring sites at Brixton High Street, Vauxhall and Stretham Green provide important coverage in the south-east of the network and help to define the spatial distribution of concentrations across London. All three sites were reviewed in the recent "Strategic review of air quality monitoring in London" report.
In 2010 the kerbside site on Brixton High Street recorded the highest NO2 annual mean on the network of 173 ug/m3, higher even than Putney High Street. The site also saw 2,563 breaches of the hourly threshold of 200 ug/m3.
In addition, the particulate monitor at Vauxhall was one of only two stations on the network to exceed the PM10 annual mean of 40 ug/m3 in 2010 and also recorded 80 breaches of the daily threshold of 50 ug/m3.
These important sites are now available for residents of Lambeth and Londoners across London Air's range of air quality dissemination platforms.
We are pleased to have Lambeth back in the LAQN.
