ULEZ Is Almost Here
18 March 2019
The central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which aims to help take the most polluting vehicles off London’s streets, starts in just over a week’s time on 8 April. And Transport for London (TfL) is reminding drivers to check their vehicles online and get ready for the scheme which will help clean up London’s air. Part of the Mayor’s far-reaching work to protect London’s health from harmful air pollution, ULEZ will help harmful NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) road transport emissions reduce by 45 per cent in its first year.
Over the last year, TfL has worked with the DVLA to send more than 600,000 letters to owners of non-compliant vehicles spotted in the Congestion Charge Zone, but whether you’ve heard from them or not and plan to travel into the existing Congestion Charge Zone, then it’s worth using TfL’s vehicle checker to see whether the ULEZ charge will apply to you.
