Answered By:

I am keen to announce details as soon as the proposals are finalised and can confirm all parts of London outside the central Ultra Low Emission Zone are being considered, including Worcester Park.

The criteria focus on locations where it is forecast buses will contribute 40 per cent or more of road transport NOx in 2020 and where NO2 concentrations will still exceed safe legal limits at that time.
