Air pollution in shops and on tube and railway stations remains cause for concern, studies show
The UK government is under pressure to adopt World Health Organization guidelines for air pollution. This is a debate about the air outdoors. Step off the pavement into a train station, shop or football stadium and the limits do not apply. Should the same levels of protection apply to indoor public spaces?
Diesel trains mean nitrogen dioxide in King’s Cross and Paddington stations in London, and Waverley station in Edinburgh are about twice the annual limits for outdoor air. In Birmingham New Street it is about eight times more.
