A statement from the branch said: “Transport is the UK’s single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions.
“South West London Greenpeace Group is calling on the local council and the Government to invest more money into walking, cycling and green public transport, rather than building new roads.
“Certain areas in South West London have been highlighted as having the worst air quality and highest levels of pollution within the city.
“This is due to standing traffic in particular spots and the number of vehicles using certain streets as through-routes.
“During February half-term, we are hosting socially-distanced activities to celebrate our Low-Traffic Neighbourhoods.”
