Businesses that drive into London’s forthcoming Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) are being urged to check their vehicles’ compliance with the new standards.
Marked out as the world’s first ULEZ, the scheme will come into effect in the current central London Congestion Charge Zone on 8 April 2019 and will replace the current T-Charge while sitting alongside the Congestion Charge. Non-compliant vehicles will face a daily charge (£12.50 for cars, vans and motorcycles, £100 for buses, coaches and lorries) to travel within the zone.
Manheim data published late last year shows that 80% of vans are still not compliant with the scheme and TfL is now urging motorists to check their vehicles using the ULEZ tool as part of an awareness campaign underway.
Alex Williams, director of city planning at TfL, said: “With three months until ULEZ starts, we are reminding all drivers in London to take action and check their vehicles’ compliance through our website.”
