“The visually stunning green wall has taken just a month to install and, as well as having practical environmental benefits, is an attractive leafy addition to Marylebone Road. It features a total of 15 plant varieties crafted into a multi-coloured and patterned design. Studies across Europe and the USA have shown the potential of vegetation, including trees and plants, to trap PM10. The air quality benefits of this wall will be monitored by scientists from Imperial College London. The green wall is just one of a range of innovative and targeted measures being introduced by the Mayor, Boris Johnson, to deliver cleaner air in London at places where particulate matter (PM10) pollution is highest.” (Stunning green wall unveiled at Edgware Road Tube station, Transport for London)
