Environment Committee

The Environment Committee looks at what additional measures could be taken to help improve the quality of life for Londoners and investigates topics ranging from airport expansion and burst water mains, to noise from the Night Tube and the environmental impacts of plastic water bottles.

Tube Dust

The accumulation of dust in the sub-surface section of the Underground is commonly referred to as tunnel or tube dust. Tube dust has been of concern for some time due to the potential health risks it  could pose for both passengers and workers.

The London Assembly Environment Committee is investigating the level of tube dust on the London Underground and the impact it is having on public health.
