Use our clean air route finder to choose the cleanest route to your destination.
Pollution data is provided by the Environmental Research Group at Kingâ€™s College and updated hourly, based on London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory models and the latest measurements from monitoring stations on the London Air Quality Network. A live calculation of the map accuracy is available here.
In addition to our online clean air route finder, CRPâ€™s Clean Air Better Business programme is supporting on-street signalling of clean air walking routes across central London.
Independent monitoring by Kings College London has shown that routes identified by CRP and partners have between air pollutant concentrations between 30% and 60% lowerÂ than more heavily-used alternatives between transport hubs and key pedestrian destinations.
With Mayor of London Air Quality Funding, CRP and partners are encouraging pedestrians to use these routes by planning and delivering on-street signalling, including signposting, greening, lighting and urban realm improvements. These interventions will deliver on the Mayor’s new healthy streets approach to London’s public realm.
London’s first ever clean air walking route, the ‘Wellbeing Walk’ between Euston and King’s Cross stations was launched by Urban Partners and CRP in 2015. SinceÂ then, foot traffic has more than trebled, delivering benefits to independent businesses down the route and reducing many commuters and travellers’ exposure to air pollution.
Read about our clean air walking routes project in the Guardian article “Side street routes to avoid city pollution can cut exposure by half.”
Please contact CRP’s Brendon HarperÂ if you would like to embed the online route finder on your website or intranet.
