Sadiq Khan urges drivers to avoid 'unnecessary' car journeys over 'toxic' air rates

Date:


Most vehicles which are not compliant with the scheme will have to pay a £12.50 daily charge to enter the zone, in addition to the Congestion Charge. 

A London-wide ULEZ would also remove between 285 and 330 tonnes of the dangerous nitrogen oxide emissions from London’s air, while between 135,000 to 150,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions would be removed, according to City Hall.

The mayor promised to introduce “the biggest” car scrappage scheme feasible “to help Londoners on low incomes, disabled Londoners and businesses” adapt to the new scheme.

Earlier this year, Sadiq Khan warned that London faces a crisis of “filthy air and gridlocked roads” unless car use is reduced.
