Sadiq Khan

Mayor of London

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has said he wants to help every Londoner breathe cleaner air and plans to do this by taking old, polluting cars of the capital’s roads.

Khan’s plans include bringing forward the Ultra-Low Emission Zone one year earlier to April 2019 and introducing the £10 Toxicity Charge for vehicles that do not meet Euro 4 standards for both PM and NOx emissions. Khan has also introduced the second Low Emission Bus Zone, with an additional 12 planned to be implemented by 2020.

Whilst Khan’s air quality measures may be quite prohibitive for older fleets operating in and out of London, air quality is a real public health issue and he is under the scrutiny to tackle the problem.
