Please provide a map detailing the positions of all the cameras that TfL plans to introduce in order to ensure the expansion of the ULEZ to the North and South Circulars is effective, including which cameras are already in position and which are yet to be put in place.

The expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will build upon the success of the central London ULEZ to further improve air quality for millions more Londoners.

ULEZ enforcement is designed to incentivise drivers to change their behaviour in order to meet the required emissions standards. The area covered by the existing ULEZ has around 650 cameras. Whilst the new zone will be 18 times the size, new technology means only around 750 additional cameras need to be installed. TfL began installing cameras in August.

Cameras will be placed at every entry and exit point and at appropriate locations within the zone. Transport for London does not publish the locations of its cameras, as this would undermine their deterrent effect. Some of the cameras will be moveable and will be placed at different locations within the zone, ensuring effective operation of the scheme.
