With London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone due for a massive expansion next month, Christina Calderato, Head of Transport Strategy and Planning at Transport for London, tells members everything they need to know.
In her new BVRLA blog, London's Ultra Low Emission Zone is expanding: where, when, and why Christina says;
“Air pollution causes lifelong conditions including underdeveloped lungs and asthma. And is not just a problem in central London: many areas across the city still exceed legal pollution limits. That’s why improving London’s air quality is a key goal for Mayor Sadiq Khan – and why from 25 October 2021, the central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is expanding up to the North Circular Road and South Circular Road.
“It’s a bold move. The expanded ULEZ will be 18 times bigger than the current central zone, and 3.8 million people live there – although six in 10 households in the expanded zone do not own a car. The North and South Circulars themselves are not in the zone.”
