If enacted, the ULEZ will mean that vehicles which do not meet modern emissions standards will incur a daily charge of £12.50. This will be in addition to the regular congestion charge, which currently stands at £11.50 per day.
The move is intended to improve air quality in the capital, which is currently in breach of EU regulations due to high nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels.
The proposed emissions standard for cars is Euro 4 for petrols (applicable to vehicles built from January 2006) and Euro 6 for diesels (for vehicles built after September 2015).
So if you want to visit central London in your 1940s Series I, your 1970s Range Rover Classic, 1990s Freelander, or even an eD4 Freelander 2 from 2014, you’ll need to pay £24 per day.
The ULEZ will cover the area of central London within Kings Cross, Tower Bridge, Elephant & Castle, Vauxhall Bridge and Paddington Station (a map is available at the link below).
An online public consultation on the Ultra Low Emissions Zone remains open until Friday. For more information, and to have your say, click here.
