ULEZ to cover north and south circulars
London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone will be expanded to cover the north and south circular roads in 2021, the Mayor of London has announced.
The ULEZ, which will see vans and lorries not complying with emission standards charged £12.50 and £100 per day respectively, is set to come into effect in the same central area as the congestion charge on 8 April 2019.
Following a recent consultation, Sadiq Khan today confirmed that it will expand to cover the north and circular boundaries from 25 October 2021.
The Mayor’s office claims the move will mean that 100,000 Londoners will no longer live in areas that exceed legal air quality limits in 2021.
The Deputy Mayor of Environment and Energy, Shirley Rodrigues, said: “Today’s announcement is a pivotal moment for every Londoner who struggles to breathe clean air.
“In 2021, this will cut the number of schools in areas with illegal levels of air pollution by more than two-thirds.”
