Please mea­sure toxic emis­sions

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

PLEASE can I draw the at­ten­tion of bor­ough and town coun­cil­lors to Cas­tle Street in Maesteg at 3pm each day dur­ing the school term.

The vol­ume of traf­fic go­ing to­wards Maesteg, Nan­tyffyl­lon and Caerau is con­tin­u­ous which is caus­ing car­bon emis­sions from all com­bustible en­gines to give off toxic emis­sions which is dam­ag­ing and caus­ing ma­jor res­pi­ra­tory prob­lems to our young­sters and el­derly.

Such sci­en­tific re­ports of re­cent date il­lus­trate chronic asthma and ma­jor res­pi­ra­tory prob­lems to our fam­i­lies, friends and neigh­bours.

Please carry out daily checks based on med­i­cal anal­y­sis to un­der­stand the ef­fects and im­pact on us. I bring this to your at­ten­tion with the ob­jec­tive of re­duc­ing the im­pact and im­prov­ing the health of all in the Llynfi Val­ley and else­where in the bor­ough. Steve Jones Garth
