London Ultra low emissions zones averts more air pollution than that caused by capital’s airports

More toxic air pollution has been averted by London’s ultra-low emission zones than is produced by the capital’s airports or its river and rail transport combined, according to a new analysis of the effects of the Ulez. The report showed that improvements in air quality between 2019 and 2022 from lowering motor vehicle pollution – even before the expansion of the Ulez throughout the capital since August – rivalled the potential savings from entirely cleaning up London’s aviation or industrial and commercial heat and power generation. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/dec/28/london-ulez-averts-more-air-pollution-than-that-caused-by-capitals-airports-report-shows

        Wow, that's impressive! I'm glad to see the Ulez is making such a significant difference in London's air quality. This paves the way for other cities to follow suit.

          This analysis underscores the positive impact of London's Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) in significantly reducing air pollution. The report reveals that the measures to lower motor vehicle pollution, including the ULEZ expansion since August, have averted more toxic air pollution than what is generated by the capital's airports, river, and rail transport combined. This highlights the effectiveness of targeted policies like ULEZ in addressing climate change by curbing emissions from a major pollution source—vehicles. The findings emphasize the importance of sustainable urban planning and transport policies in mitigating environmental impact and contribute to broader efforts in the fight against climate change.

                  The Ultra Low Emissions Zones in London are doing a good job reducing air pollution, even more than what the city's airports contribute.
