TTW Community Event Exploring Air Pollution

This event will be held at CREW 8/9 South St Worthing BN11 3AL
Tues 9th May at 2pm Admission free

Air pollution is damaging our environment and our health. Between 28,000 and 36,000 early deaths are attributable to air pollution each year in the UK. Road transport is responsible for 80% of roadside NO2 pollution where legal limits are being broken. Urgent and increased action by governments is necessary to reduce air pollution to safer levels. In the transport sector, governments must be set ambitious modal shift targets underpinned by significant leadership and investment. Governments must do more to help people leave their cars at home for everyday journeys and make more sustainable trips (by foot, cycle or on public transport).

The next TTW Transport Group meeting is Fri 3rd Feb at 2pm at The Brewhouse Wykeham Rd, Worthing BN11 4JD all welcome to join us.

There are two local campaigns going on at the moment on cycling were you can have your say:

Lancing and Sompting (consultation ends 27 Feb) Western Road corridor (Red Route): A27/Busticle Lane in the north to A259/Western Road in the south A2025 Grinstead Lane corridor (Orange Route): A27/Grinstead Lane in the north to A259/South Street in the south East-West corridor (Green Route): Lambleys Lane/Upper Brighton Road in the west to A2025 Grinstead Lane/Crabtree Lane in the east

Shoreham to Hove (consultation ends 27 Feb)
The proposed scheme consists of a mostly two-way cycle lane, separated from the road and footway, on the southern side of the A259, between the junction of East Street and the Adur Ferry Bridge in the west, to the Brighton & Hove boundary in the east.

Register for Transport Transition Summit

Register for your place at the Transport Transition Summit, taking place on 11 & 12 May, to connect with a growing network of over 1,500 transport, energy and policy professionals mapping the next phase of the transport transition.

About the Summit

Transportation underpins our society, connecting people, cities, economies and fostering growth and employment. With global trade and travel swelling to meet the demands of a growing consumer population, a business-as-usual trajectory in the transport sector would see emissions rocket further.

Decarbonisation action is needed now across all asset classes, full value chains and product life cycles. Electric vehicles may be at tipping point, but heavy lifting is now required to decarbonise the giants of aviation and shipping as well as to commercialise zero-emission freight.

How can we use lessons from the pandemic to support future sustainable mobility and transport? And how can policy, investment and innovation be combined to build and deploy the necessary infrastructure required to support the mass adoption of clean transport?
