On October 25 the ultra-low emission zone expanded from central London to the boundaries of the North and South Circular roads.
The ULEZ is one of the Mayor of London’s main plans to improve the health of citizens. Before the pandemic, the ULEZ contributed to a 44% reduction in harmful roadside nitrogen dioxide (NO2) within the zone.
The new ULEZ zone will help almost 4 million people
The new zone now covers 3.8 million people living in London. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year – except Christmas Day (25th December).
Most vehicles need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or be forced to pay a £12.50 daily charge to drive inside the zone.
You can monitor current levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PM10) in London in real-time from over 40 air quality monitoring stations on the MyAirly map. The maps can be accessed through the Airly website or on the mobile app available for Android, iOS and Huawei devices.
