London plans ultra low emission zone

The London transport authority is consulting on a proposal to develop the world’s first 'ultra low emission zone' in central London

The London transport authority is consulting on a proposal to develop the world’s first 'ultra low emission zone' (ULEZ) in central London.

The zone is planned to coincide with an existing congestion charge zone and would enter into effect from September 2020, according to a proposal by Transport for London.

The idea was put forward by the city’s mayor to reduce air pollutants and CO2 emissions in central London. Around 4,300 deaths in London are partly attributed to long-term exposure to air pollution.
