College Students Support Henley in Transition Transport Project
Economics students at The Henley College will be carrying our research alongside a new survey, which aims to produce an overview of transport usage in the town.
The survey, produced by environmental campaign group Henley in Transition, is aimed at businesses and organisations, as well as residents.
Paul Morse, Head of Economics at the College, said: ‘As our Economics students will shortly be commencing their study of the A2 transport module, this survey will undoubtedly provide an ideal opportunity for them to gain some practical local experience of the relevant issues, especially concerning sustainability. We are really looking forward to working closely with the Henley in Transition group over the next few weeks.’
Nine locations in Henley, including Market Place, Greys Road and Reading Road, have been identified as exceeding pollution levels set by Air Quality England. Nearby Duke Street has recorded the highest nitrogen dioxide levels in South Oxfordshire.
Henley in Transition has organised a series of sessions to generate and share ideas on how to tackle these problems and hopes to produce a detailed plan and recommendations in due course.
