New air quality monitoring stations have been built in Parramatta, Gunnedah and Narrabri, expanding New South Wales’s nation leading Air Quality Monitoring Network, Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton announced today.

“New South Wales has led the rest of the country in air quality monitoring and protection, these monitoring stations add to our sophisticated Air Quality Monitoring Network the largest and most comprehensive in Australia.” Minister Upton said.

New monitoring stations in the Parramatta CBD, at Kitchener Park in Gunnedah and at Narrabri Airport have been completed and are already operational.

New South Wales Government is also partnering with industry and the community to establish a monitoring network in the Namoi Valley.

“We are establishing a Namoi Regional Air Quality Advisory Committee to work on the North-West Air Quality Monitoring Network.” Minister Upton said.

“These new stations give us the information we need to understand air quality in areas where people work, live and play in New South Wales.”

New South Wales Air Quality Monitoring Network collects information from 48 stations across the state, providing up-to-date information on air quality.
