The scheme would affect some 70,000 vehicles which initial estimates suggest would be non-compliant in 2012 when the scheme is proposed to commence. The total cost to operators is provisionally estimated at some £90 million to comply with the scheme requirements. Further assessment of the potential costs of Phase 3 will be carried out as part of the public and stakeholder consultation on the draft Air Quality Strategy.

The cost to TfL to implement Phase 3 of the scheme is estimated to be up to £9 million.
