The Ultra Low Emission Zone, cleaner buses and new requirements for zero emission capable taxis will be a game-changer for London and ensure more than 80% of central London is compliant with EU legal limits for NO2 by 2020.

My Transport Emission Road Map set out a number of options for enhancing the Ultra Low Emission Zone and the Low Emission Zone as well as exploring other potential measures to deliver further improvements in London's air quality. I have asked TfL to start exploring these with the London boroughs and other relevant stakeholders.
