    ESG concerned about “Healthy Play Park” in La Bateria, Rosia Road

    8th April 2011

    The ESG would like to caution users of the exercise park in La Bateria, Rosia Road,  to use the new equipment mindfully and to be aware of wind conditions which could direct high pollution emissions from the power stations to the park area.

    Harmful pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter known to cause respiratory ailments and other illnesses are contained in emissions from the diesel engines combustion process from power stations as well as traffic fumes.  ESG urge park users to watch out for south westerlies in particular when air quality could worsen at the park.
