The Government's Infrastructure Report states that the "the Government will provide an additional £10 million between 2017-18 and 2019-20 to increase ultra-low emission vehicles in London, in support of the ambition to introduce an Ultra-Low Emission Zone by 2025."  You have said that the ULEZ will come into effect from 2020. Who is right?

Answer for ULEZ

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I welcome the additional support we received from the Government in the National Infrastructure Plan to help deliver my game-changing proposals for an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in 2020. This additional funding complements the £330m I have already announced in this year's TfL Business Plan.

I am currently consulting on the statutory variation order to introduce the ULEZ scheme in 2020, which closes on 9th January 2015. TfL will report to me on the results and I expect to make a decision early next year.
