London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone will improve the lives of millions
In response to The Mayor of London’s announcement today that an Ultra-Low Emission Zone will be brought in for central London in April 2019 and expanded to the North and South Circular roads from October 2021, Paul Morozzo, clean air campaigner at Greenpeace, said:
“The arrival of the world’s first and biggest ULEZ in London is cause for a celebration. Thousands of Londoners contributed to consultations to make this a reality and it will have a major impact on air quality in the city, improving the lives of millions of people.
“London has moved into the fast lane when it comes to tackling harmful air pollution, and now central government and the car industry must change up a gear and show they can match Sadiq Khan’s ambition.
“Government funding and support for other UK cities to introduce similar schemes is desperately needed and car makers like VW need to ditch diesel and go electric. People everywhere have a right to breathe clean air.”
