Engine idling is being actively discouraged by the GLA and TfL. This was initially done through a London wide education and awareness initiative aimed at all driver groups (private and professional drivers).  Outer and inner London boroughs have pledged their continued support in respect of TfL's anti engine idling campaign and are applying their powers to enforce the issue in varying degrees. 

£1 million has been invested in the advertising campaign to promote 'No Engine Idling.' In addition, there are ongoing actions to tackle this issue and improve air quality as demonstrated in my response to MQ 3094 /2014.
