Extend the Ultra-Low-Emission-Zone to the whole of London

Extend the Ultra-Low-Emission-Zone to the whole of London

“We call on the Mayor of London and Transport for London to introduce an Ultra Low Emission Zone for all vehicles to cover the whole of Greater London by 2019.”

Why is this important?

We are calling on the Mayor of London to tackle air pollution and save lives by creating an Ultra Low Emission Zone (‘ULEZ’) to cover the whole of Greater London.

An ULEZ is an area in which vehicles must meet exhaust emission standards or pay a daily travel charge. The highest charges will be paid by the most polluting vehicles. The Mayor is proposing to create an ULEZ for all vehicles in central London in 2019. He is consulting on whether to extend it to cover the area inside the North and Circular Road and also to create an ULEZ for the whole of London but only for heavy vehicles. We are asking him to go further.

Air pollution is now a major health risk. We need powerful measures to tackle it. An ULEZ which applies only to heavy vehicles will not be enough to protect people from pollution in outer London, especially where people live and work next to the North or South Circular. Creating an ULEZ for all vehicles to cover the whole of London would significantly reduce pollution in outer London and would better improve the air quality in central London than an ULEZ that covers central London alone.

For these reasons we ask you to add your name to this petition:

Reasons for signing

  • I live on Kew Bridge Road and I am asthmatic. There is already going to be heavier pollution once the new Brentford stadium is built.
  • Becuase you can hardly breath in teh air on my school run to Danson Primary without gagging on diesel. God only knows what it's doing to our kids growing lungs.
  • My children walk to school in a cloud of pollution.
