30th September 2016 - ‘Everyone deserves clean air’ says Islwyn MP

Islwyn MP hails long service of local Labour stalwartIslwyn MP Chris Evans has said that everyone deserves clean air after signing a petition by Crumlin Labour Councillor Andrew Lewis aimed at reducing pollution on the A472 at Hafodyrynys alongside Islwyn’s AM Rhianon Passmore.

The petition comes after an investigation in May by The Guardian found that the A472 Hafodyrynys Road in Crumlin, Caerphilly registered the highest nitrogen dioxide levels in the country outside of London. The pollution is thought to be caused by busy traffic along the road, particularly at peak times of the day.

An air quality assessment produced by Caerphilly County Borough Council in 2013 estimated that approximately 78 people who live on the road are exposed to the high pollution levels which it says are caused primarily by HGVs and congestion on the road.

Mr Evans said: ‘I fully support the campaign led by Andrew to ensure that residents in Crumlin and Hafodyrynys have the clean air they deserve. I am delighted to have signed the petition.

‘The campaign has attracted many supporters already and I am certain, with such strong local feeling on this issue, there will be more. I trust the relevant authorities will heed residents’ concerns and act quickly to reduce pollution in the area.’
