In April 2018, AECOM carried out a data collection exercise on behalf of Transport for London (TfL) in order to more accurately predict the London population of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). This analysed the number of HGVs over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight (Category N3) operating in London by make and model against the proposed Direct Vision Standard (DVS).

The results indicate that 0-star vehicles represent 29 per cent of the London N3 vehicle population, vehicles with a 1-2 star rating represent 43 per cent, and vehicles rated 3-5 stars represent 28 per cent of London N3 vehicles.

The total number of unique individual N3 vehicles recorded entering London in 2016 was 222,278.
