TfL are working with boroughs to look at the feasibility of expanding the ULEZ and/or tightening the standards for the London-wide Low Emission Zone beyond 2020.  An update on this work will be provided to London Councils later this year.  Until the assessment is completed, it is not clear what the likely additional costs of extending ULEZ to the area around Euston might be. 

TfL is separately pressing HS2 to adopt stricter construction standards as used by Crossrail and proposed by the Northern Line Extension and Thames Tideway Tunnel projects.  If these were to be adopted by HS2, then all construction vehicles and the plant and machinery used would meet ULEZ standards.
