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. 

I welcome that in its latest proposals, HS2 has recommended the adoption of Euro VI vehicles to be used at all HS2 construction worksites.
