Alarming levels of pollution around Gżira

Levels of a pollutant dust around Gżira primary school exceeded the EU limit 224 times, according to a report released yesterday.

Data revealed that nearby residents also suffered as air monitoring figures from a private home in Gżira showed the limit was exceeded by 241 times, while a residence in Sliema Road was 112 times above the EU limit.

EU air quality regulations allow for pollution benchmarks of particulate matter (a dangerous fine dust that remains trapped in the lungs) to be exceeded only 35 times a year.

The data was listed in a report commissioned by Transport Malta to look into the environmental impacts of a development application to upgrade the roundabout junction, which is in the centre of Regional Road and Sliema Road.
