Green Wall

Chris Hammond Breaking Ground

Green Wall

Construction will begin next week alongside some newly planted Trees

As part of our Clean Air Strategy, Your Labour-run Council are trialling a Green Wall’ on the Western Approach in the Payne’s Road area near Millbrook Railway Station, and liaising with landowners to consider extending it if successful. Construction will begin next week alongside some newly planted trees, which will substantially improve the environment, making the area more attractive, especially for cyclists.
Cabinet Member for Sustainable Living, Councillor Christopher Hammond, said: “The city council is fully committed to finding a range of ways to improve air quality. Green Walls are acknowledged as being a remedy for poor air quality, so it’s right that we trial it on one of our most polluted roads.
"Initially the Green Wall will look just like any other fencing, and over time greenery will be grown up and over, creating an efficient urban pollutant filter, yielding rapid and sustained improvements in street-level air quality.”
