Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am currently consulting on a major set of initiatives, including options to extend the boundary of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone. TfL, GLA, London boroughs and London Councils continue to discuss the technical details of extending the ULEZ. The current consensus is that an individual borough "opt-in" system would not provide a workable solution for Londoners because of the need for a clear enforcement strategy and understandable diversion route away from the zone.
