London Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced a further consultation relating to the introduction of new air quality measures.
Having introduced the T-charge in central London in October and brought forward the start date of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) for central London to 8 April 2019 - seventeen months earlier than planned - the Mayor is now proposing to introduce a number of new initiatives including:
• Raising the emission standard of the existing London-wide Low Emission Zone to Euro VI from 2020, which will affect heavy vehicles – buses, coaches, HGVs and other heavy specialist vehicles
• Expanding the ULEZ for light vehicles (cars, vans and motorcycles) from central London to inner London up to, but not including the North and South Circular roads in 2021 so that all vehicles in this area are subject to emissions standards
The consultation closes on 28 February 2018.
