TfL has not carried out any detailed assessment of the costs and impacts of inner London Low Emission Zones at a standard equivalent to Phase 3 in 2012.

The option of a Low Emission Zone at the proposed Phase 3 standard for either inner London or the extended central London congestion charging zone is not contained within the current consultation draft of the Mayor's Air Quality Strategy. I am aware that this is one suggestion arising from the consultation. TfL will look at this issue further.
