​Managing air quality

How we are managing and improving air quality in Richmond upon Thames.

Low-pollution walking routes in West London

To promote walking as a sustainable transport mode and help protect walkers from routes with high air pollution, the West London Air Quality Cluster Group commissioned Walkit.com, with a grant from Transport for London, to produce air pollution-aware walking routes for West London.

You can visit the Walkit.com website to plan your journey along low pollution routes in West London.

Air quality alerts - airTEXT

The air quality forecast for today can be seen on the airTEXT website together with some health advice if levels are high.

We are taking part in a London wide air quality information service, to help people who are more at risk from high levels of air pollution. The two year service known as airTEXT works by sending air pollution alerts via text message, emails and voice mail. You can register for this free service if you:

  • Have been diagnosed by your doctor with asthma, emphysema, bronchitis or COPD, heart disease or angina
  • Live or work in Richmond

How to register

Visit the Sign up page (on the airTEXT website). You can choose to receive the alerts by:

  • Text message to your mobile phone
  • Recorded voice message to your home phone
  • Email

For further information, you can contact the Special Projects Team on 020 8891 7729. If you have neighbours or friends who wish to be registered, and who have no Internet access, they can also call this number to register.
