Does the ULEZ 4-month report show that London is on track to meet your target to clean up our air and bring pollution into legal limits by 2025?

Yes, the ULEZ 4-month on report shows that the scheme is working well, and more details of the impacts are provided in answer to MQ 2019/19899. But to achieve the goal of meeting legal limits by 2025, expansion of the ULEZ to the North and South circular roads is still needed, alongside the steps I am taking to clean up London’s bus and taxi fleet, reduce emissions from construction as well as other sources.

Merely achieving legal limits is not the end of my ambition, I want London to have the cleanest air of any major world city, which is why I have introduced my own target of achieving WHO targets for PM2.5 by 2030. To do this I will need help from government, which is why I have asked them to not only match my ambitious targets but also to grant me and the London Boroughs the powers and resources we need to tackle all sources of pollution.
