Mayor reveals vision for cleaner air

5th July 2016

Mayor of London's office: how can we clean up our air?

The Mayor of London has outlined a major crackdown on vehicle pollution in a bid to improve air quality.

Sadiq Khan’s plans include a £10 emissions surcharge on the most-polluting vehicles entering central London from 2017, introducing the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) a year earlier in 2019, and extending the ULEZ beyond central London from 2020.

New ‘clean bus corridors’ on the dirtiest routes and a detailed proposal for scrapping diesel nationally are also among measures announced by the Mayor today in what is described as “the toughest crackdown on the most-polluting vehicles by any major city around the world.”
