Come up for air

Abingdon has green river valleys stretching to the town centre.

cleaner red buses with the slogan 'come up for air'

The Abits (Abingdon Integrated Transport Strategy) plan involved holding traffic outside the town centre, and letting it through in a controlled way so that exhaust fumes did not forever pollute the town centre streets. Here at lunchtime, traffic is moving through fairly well, in batches. But later on, at going home time, there was one continuous line of idling traffic along High Street. West St Helen Street was even worse with stationary traffic right back to the church until 7:30 PM.

So come up here for the air, but you'll have to judge whether its safe to inhale..
