Neighbourhood Watch: Air Pollution

View descriptionShare

Melbourne’s West has a pollution problem and residents are fed up with government inaction. 


This week, you’ll hear about original reporting from students working on two separate projects — one looking into freight truck exhaust fumes, another investigating years of fires at a landfill near residential properties. Both issues are severely affecting local health.  


The projects are part of a special series called Neighborhood Watch, which puts a local spotlight on burning issues. 


Student reporters from The Citizen collaborated on these articles with The Age and Right Now — a not-for-profit online magazine focused on human rights. 


Thank you to interviewees Jade Murray, Violet Li, and Marilyn Tan.
