Answer for Coach Emissions

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposed London Low Emission Zone would seek to ensure that from July 2008 all buses and coaches entering or travelling within Greater London comply with the Euro III standard for particulates (PM10). From 2010, it is proposed that such vehicles would need to meet a standard of Euro IV for PM10 or, in the event that NOx certification capability is available, a standard of Euro IV for PM10 and NOx.
