London's health boost

28th February 2008

Researchers say that London’s congestion charge, which was introduced to reduce traffic in the capital, may have delivered a small and unexpected health boost.

A study in Occupational and Environmental Medicine says reduced pollution has aided health as well with scientists from two London colleges calculating that the benefit since 2003 has been some 1,888 extra years of life saved among the city’s seven million residents. Car journeys in London have fallen by a quarter, leading to improvements in air quality.
