East Leeds Orbital Road – Measuring Air Quality

Would you be willing to have a diffusion tube on your property to measure air quality? These are palm sized and don’t need maintenance. Their purpose is to measure air quality at strategic locations prior to the East Leeds Orbital Road being built which can be used to ensure that once the road is built, air quality is maintained at its original level. If interested in taking part, please e-mail Christina.Terro@leeds.gov.uk or Jon.Tubby@leeds.gov.uk. Thanks.
