ULEZ Expansion

ULEZ Expansion

On the 8th April 2019, an Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London. Most vehicles will need to meet the tighter exhaust emission standards or pay a daily charge to travel within the ULEZ area. This area will be expanded to the North and South Circular Roads on the 25th October 2021.

Although the introduction of the ULEZ in central London met little or no resistance, the 2021 expansion is viewed by many as a step too far.

The inclusion of so many densely populated residential areas will no doubt raise a considerable income for TfL but is also likely to have a severe negative impact. Whether or not it improves air quality remains to be seen.

One thing that is sure to happen is an increase in use of the public transport system. That will require more TfL buses, (responsible for 20% of nitrogen oxide traffic pollution).

Although the consultation on the ULEZ is closed, a petition was started to oppose the expansion. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan responded by reiterating the need to clean up London’s air. However, the rhetoric employed by the Mayor doesn’t fit with the data (as provided by LondonAir.org.uk).
