Good day to bury bad air?

About 5pm on budget-day and we've just received an electronic briefing note signifying that two more areas of the city are now failing statutory air-quality targets - you can see the information here, although nothing has been Press-Released?

Here's the crucial text:

"Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA)
The ongoing air quality monitoring work undertaken by Services for Communities has identified further locations at Great Junction Street and West Port where there are breaches of the National nitrogen dioxide air quality objectives. In addition, locations within the Central and St Johns Road AQMAs breach the hourly objective as well as the annual objective."

Call me a cynic - but a good day to bury bad air, perhaps?
