London’s fight against toxic car fumes gains momentum with £10 T-Charge 0

Blog 1

Drivers of the most polluting vehicles on the roads may now have to pay a daily charge of as much as £21.50 to enter central London.

The £10 T-Charge came into effect last week meaning drivers of older, more polluting vehicles entering central London will now have to pay an extra £10 on top of the current congestion charge of £11.50.

The capital’s legal pollution levels are regularly breached and in a bid to improve air quality, London mayor, Sadiq Khan has introduced the T-charge as a precursor to the ultra-low emissions zone that will be introduced in 2019.

“As mayor, I am determined to take urgent action to help clean up London’s lethal air. The shameful scale of the public health crisis London faces, with thousands of premature deaths caused by air pollution, must be addressed,” he said.

“Today marks a major milestone in this journey with the introduction of the T-charge to encourage motorists to ditch polluting, harmful vehicles.

“London now has the world’s toughest emissions standard with older, more polluting vehicles paying up to £21.50 a day to drive in the centre of the city. This is the time to stand up and join the battle to clear the toxic air we are forced to breathe.”

The T-Charge is applicable to Pre-Euro 4 vehicles.
