GSD Leader Keith Azopardi has tweeted to say that the lives of children and workers are being endangered in peak traffic times, and simple changes could make a difference.
He has highlighted that business deliveries being carried out at peak times where children are walking to school and workers are starting their day is adding to already heavy levels of pollution. He is calling for engagement with the business sector to try and find times outside of the key 8-9.30am window where less pedestrians are on the move. Responses to his tweet have been mixed, with some people pointing out that making deliveries earlier could generate noise level complaints. Another interesting suggesting would be suggesting a hub delivery point in main street where delivery vehicles could wheel goods from rather than driving down Main Street - or allowing only electric vehicles to deliver, as happens in major UK cities with Low Emission Zones.
