Next to LMV director Ed Scott-Clarke’s apartment in London is Edgware Road tube station, which has recently become the site of a 200 square-metre ‘green wall’. The wall (pictured), according to the Metro newspaper, is made up of ’15 evergreen and perennial plant varieties [that] have been carefully selected to absorb harmful particulate matter from exhaust fumes’. The Edgware Road flyover is one of London’s busiest roads. The wall is part of a broader scheme funded by the Department for Transport’s Clean Air Fund to reduce levels of PM10, a particulate generated mostly by car exhausts, in the run up to the Olympics. Other projects include mass tree planting with 500 news trees being planted along London’s streets so far by the fund. These include 200 lime trees on the A40 and 50 ‘planted towers’ on Lower Thames St. There are also plans to introduce ‘age limits for taxi and private hire vehicles, investing in cleaner buses, building more cycle lanes, and tightening standards in the Low Emission Zone.’ As well as providing an invaluable service to the city, green walls also look amazing and LMV hopes that there will be many more to come.
