The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) was introduced in 2008 to help improve the air quality in London by preventing the most polluting vehicles from being driven into the Greater London area. To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London from 8 April 2019
The London congestion charge and T-charge scheme is in operation Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am and 6pm. The zone stretches from City Road in the East to Park Lane and from Marylebone Road to Elephant and Castle.
To support the partnership work between the BVRLA, Road Haulage Association (RHA), Freight Transport Association (FTA) and National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) concerning the impact of Clean Air Zones (CAZ) on HGVs, a new factsheet has been published.
The BVRLA welcomes the opportunity to contribute to Transport for London’s consultation on the proposals for an Ultra-Low Emission Zone.
The BVRLA Fleet Sustainability Credentials show that the rental and leasing sectors are already leading the transition to cleaner transport. The new data shows 94% of the BVRLA car rental fleet and 75% of leased cars are Clean Air Zone (CAZ) compliant just fifteen months before the first zones are expected to begin operating. These figures are well ahead of the average for all UK cars, where only 57% meet CAZ emission requirements.
