London T-Charge launches

Published:  23 October, 2017

London’s new T-Charge came into force today (Monday 23 October 2017).


Under the new system, drivers of older, higher polluting vehicles pay the £10 T-Charge, on top of the existing £11.50 congestion charge when entering central London’s congestion charge zone.


The T-Charge is expected to affect 10,000 drivers in the capital each year and will apply between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
The T-Charge  has been introduced in a bid to cut London's toxic air pollution levels, which at present exceed the World Health Organisation's limit for PM2.5 particles.


The T-Charge is the first in a series of new rates set to be brought in for London. The new charge is due to be superceded by a stricter Ultra-Low Emission Zone by 2020.


Drivers can see if their vehicle is affected by the T-Charge via TfL's online checker:  https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/emissions-surcharge
