Back Alex's 5 point pollution plan

1. Regular (at least weekly) spot checks of vehicle emissions.

2. Speed up roll out of electric and hybrid buses.

3. More investment in cycle paths & safe walking routes.

4. Moratorium on house building on the greenbelt in West Edinburgh

5. Investment in public transport links serving the airport.

A report published on the weekend showed that St John’s Road, Corstorphine is the most polluted street in Scotland, with pollution levels recorded at nearly 50% over European safety standards.

Alex Cole-Hamilton has responded by launching a 5 point action plan for Edinburgh Council and the Scottish Government to adopt in order to reduce levels of harmful pollutants, thought responsible for 2,000 premature deaths in Scotland each year.
