What is the ULEZ?

| In Motoring News

As a means to tackle London’s ever-growing air pollution problem, TFL are to introduce the Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) on 8th April 2019. But what is the ULEZ and how will it affect you?

Where is the ULEZ?

The ULEZ will be implemented in 2 stages. From the 8th April 2019, the ULEZ will be introduced in the same location but replacing the current T-Charge zone. From 25th October 2021, the ULEZ will be extended using the North and South Circulars as boundaries. Any vehicles using the circulars will not have to comply to ULEZ standards if they are not entering the zone.

How much will it cost?

The daily charge for any uncompliant vehicle under 3.5 tonnes will be £12.50. This is in addition to the current congestion charge, and will be chargeable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Will my vehicle be affected?

Weather your vehicle will be affected by the ULEZ will depend on it’s euro emission standard. When a vehicle is built it must comply with strict emissions regulations which are updated every few years. The current Euro 6 set of standards were released in September 2015.
