TfL\'s Low Emission Zone came into effect 4th February 2008

4th February 2008

We've all probably noticed those vehicle registration plate-recognising cameras going up along the roads entering and exiting London. They were being positioned in readiness for the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) which came into force on 4th February 2008 and will become another burden on suppliers delivering into and around London.

It will apply 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including Bank Holidays and it will effect diesel-engined lorries over 12 tonnes in weight.

The area covered by this law is greater than the existing Congestion Charge Zone and any changes applicable will apply in addition to the Congestion Charge.

It has been brought in by TfL to improve air quality in London by deterring the most polluting vehicles from entering the area. Vehicles with more modern, cleaner engines meeting the requirements of the LEZ emissions standards will be permitted to travel at no cost, whilst vehicles with older, more polluting engines that do not meet the requirements will be hit with a substansial daily charge.

The LEZ covers most of Greater London following the Greater London Authority boundary. The daily charging policy at this time is 200 for lorries and vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, applicable from 4th February 2008.

Durey Castings Limited have upgraded their vehicles to meet the new requirements, to the most modern EURO 5 engines. Customers need not be concerned for any interuption in our supply service.

Anyone intending to supply goods into London, or enter the LEZ for any other reason, should review their vehicle compliance. Any information given in this article is for the purpose of a news article and readers are recommended to check all details with TfL themselves. Their web site can be found at
