The ULEZ expansion explained – LCC
The ULEZ expands from central London to outer London on 25 October 2021. What does that mean for you and cycling?
What do drivers pay already?
London has had a congestion charge since 2003, covering central London only, which has been shown to reduce the amount of motor traffic in the city centre. It currently runs 7am-10pm daily and costs £15. Since 2019, the same zone also is covered by the ULEZ to tackle poor air quality. It costs £12.50 per day for vehicles that do not meet the minimum emission standards.
What is changing?
ULEZ is expanding on 25 October to a much bigger area, going up to, but not including, the North and South Circular roads.
