LONDON TO ANNOUNCE ‘TOUGHEST EMISSION STANDARD’

London: London Mayor Sadiq Khan informed that the toughest emission standard of any world city will start in London in this year end. It is to curb pollution.

Euro 4 standards are typically diesel and petrol vehicles registered before 2006, according to a press release from the mayor’s office on Friday.

Most polluting vehicles, up to 10,000 of the oldes are expected every weekday to be potentially liable for the new emissions levy, which will apply to motorists who own vehicles that do not meet Euro 4 standards.

The T-Charge will use a camera-based mechanism for enforcement, monitoring both diesel and petrol vehicles.

At present over 9,000 Londoners die prematurely each year as a result of long-term exposure to air pollution, while 438 schools in the capital are in areas exceeding legal air quality levels, according to officials.
