Ultra-Low Emissions Zone will help all Londoners, say Greenpeace
Responding to the consultation launch on the expansion of London’s ULEZ to the North and South Circular for cars and vans, and London-wide for heavy vehicles, Paul Morozzo, Greenpeace Clean Air campaigner, said:
“Right now, London is a great city with toxic air and congested streets. To create a great city with clean air, green spaces and a culture of walking, cycling and using better public transport, we need a Mayor with the right policies and, crucially, the guts to implement them, so today Sadiq Khan has taken a step in the right direction.
“With 95% of Londoners living in areas that far exceed World Health Organisation emission guidelines , it’s clear the Mayor’s proposal to expand the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone will help us all, especially children and people already suffering with ill health.
“A Government scrappage scheme would help people switch from diesel to electric but a healthy city needs fewer cars not just better ones.”
