Counting on … day 1:003

3rd January 2023

Low emissions zones help reduce traffic numbers in cities as well as improving air quality. 

Silviya Barrett, director of policy and research at the Campaign for Better Transport reports  “TfL estimates that six months after the expansion into inner London there were 21,000 fewer vehicles seen in the zone on an average day, a reduction of two per cent”. Further  data from the Department for Transport, shows traffic flow across the capital has decreased by 11 per cent since 2019, when the ULEZ was introduced. 

Next year, the ULEZ will expand across the entirety of Greater London.
