Zdiby (near Prague) March 30, 2024 (PROTEXT) – During the past 11 months, Zdiby managed to plant over 15,000 trees in 21 selected localities of the village. In response to the improvement of air quality, a comprehensive list of names was created, which identified transport and local heating as the main sources of pollution in the village. That is why Zdiby, in addition to planting greenery, fell in love with the additional value of air quality in the most affected cities.

The planting of greenery took place in the framework of a project supported by Norwegian funds. In addition to the aesthetic contribution, greenery filters uncertainties from the air, improves the microclimate, keeps water in the landscape, supports biodiversity and reduces traffic noise. The center of the estate is concentrated in the built-up areas of the village, specifically along the main road in Zdibe, where it will be most beneficial. The site of the estate forms a protective ring around the village, which will insulate the buildings from harmful air and noise caused by the surrounding traffic.

By investing, the community is not only creating problems, but is also trying to anticipate the future. At present, traffic mainly from the D8 road, but also from the regional highways represents the largest traffic. In the future, the situation will be worsened by the planned trans-European transit highway D0. In 2030, the limits of hazardous waste released into the air should be halved, and this does not take into account the current completion rate. The completion of D0 for Zdiby means an open traffic zone and it will be unfair to fulfill the limits no matter what, to the mayor of Zdiby Eva Slavkov.

The municipality continues to closely monitor the air quality of the housing estate in the framework of the KORIDOR D8 association in cooperation with Vysoká kola bská – Technical University of Ostrava. Data from a total of 36 sensors in the most remote locations of 12 municipalities along the D8 highway are in real time converted into a publicly available database at Namen data – concentrations of PM10, PM2.5 and PM1 – are immediately interpreted by green, orange and red smileys in the database. A red smiley face tells you when it is not appropriate to leave the house or go in. The data will be further interpreted by the university team together with Jim Black, who will jointly develop a set of recommendations for air quality improvement. Current data reflect the potable situation compared to overall parameters. The situation is not optimal, but it does not endanger the health of the population, it is not normal, but it is not normal, but it does not correspond to the planned reduction of the immission limits to half, which should be in 2030. In this case, the necessity of implementing further measures on the sources of radiation is evident in order to comply with the limits , dov Blek.

Planting of greens in Zdibe for the future, glued together of quality wood. Its monitoring will provide the municipality with detailed data for future decision-making processes, which must take into account the written immission limits and the effect of the completion of the Praskho circuit on the air quality in Zdibe.
