A6 Air Quality through Kibworths
Air quality during coronavirus lockdown
Image is from the realtime monitoring equipment on the A6 in Kibworth Harcourt. It measures Nitrogen dioxide levels from mid March to mid April 2020.
It still shows quite high peaks when the traffic volumes are very low.
A6 realtime nitrogen dioxide monitor installed
The Harborough District Council Executive at their meeting in July 2017 approved that a section of the A6 through the Kibworths be declared an Air Quality Management Area. The reason was because the average monthly levels of nitrogen dioxide were above the EU threshold for safety for most of the preceding 18 months.
District Council officers will be available to discuss this with members of the public at two drop-in sessions in July and a public meeting in August.
The details of these meetings which will all be in the Kibworth Grammar School Hall are:
- Drop-in Wednesday 26th July 6pm to 8pm
- Drop-in Thursday 27th July 10am to 12 noon
- Public meeting 16th August 7.30pm start (LCC Highways and HDC Planning invited)

The consultation ended on 17 September 2017.
We now await the next step from Harborough District Council.
