Ultra Low Emission Zone
The new Ultra Low Emission Zone comes into force in Central London on
8 April 2019 – a Transport for London and Mayor of London initiative to improve air quality.
The zone will cover the same area as the Congestion Charge and all vehicles passing through will need to comply with its emissions standards to avoid a fee of £12.50 per day for cars, motorcycles and vans weighing up to 3.5 tonnes; and £100 per day for heavier vehicles. These will be paid in addition to the existing Congestion Charge.
The ULEZ will be extended from 25 October 2021 to include the inner London area within the North and South Circular Roads, including large parts of the borough.
