Introduction

This category applies to roads that are (wholly or partly) within the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), administered by Transport for London.

It is bounded by the London Inner Ring Road, made up of stretches of A501, A5201, A1202, A11, A1210/A1211, A100, A201, A3, A3204, A202, A302, Hyde Park Corner, A4202, Marble Arch and A5.

Under current proposals, in October 2021 the ULEZ will be expanded to the area bounded by the North and South Circulars (A406/A205).

History

The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) came into operation on 4 February 2008, covering most of Greater London, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Toxicity Charge (T-Charge) was introduced on October 23 2017, with cars, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in central London (within the same area as the Congestion Charge zone) needing to meet minimum exhaust emission standards, or pay a daily £10 Emissions Surcharge. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year (except Christmas Day).

The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) replaced the T-Charge on 8 April 2019.
