London introduces 'T-charge' to curb vehicle emissions

London introduces 'T-charge' to curb vehicle emissions”

These are typically vehicles registered before 2006, but Transport for London suggests anyone who has a vehicle registered before 2008 should check to see if it is eligible for the charge.

"The shameful scale of the public health crisis London faces, with thousands of premature deaths caused by air pollution, must be addressed".

While the congestion charge has been effective in reducing the number of private vehicles in central London, the T-charge is one of the first of hopefully many measures necessary to help bring emissions down to a legal and safe level.

The new charge will be applied during 7am to 6pm weekday hours and comes on top of the existing congestion charge of 11.50 pounds, which has been in place since 2003.

The Mayor's office said that forecasts of the reduction of Nitrogen Dioxide and similar gases would be as low as 1-3 per cent by the T-charge.

"When the Mayor's own assessments prove it won't work, the T-charge becomes nothing more than an attack on London's poorest drivers and small businesses".

London's tax on its oldest polluting vehicles comes out in full force Monday in a move to improve air quality.

The owners of older, polluting cars will now have to pay $28 just to enter central London.

London will impose even tighter controls with the introduction of a "Ultra Low Emission Zone" in 2019.

Bates added: "We urgently need a programme of meaningful financial assistance to help drivers of the dirtiest vehicles switch to something cleaner, and bold policies to cut traffic over all".
