First zero emission street to launch

20 March 2020
 

The UK’s first 24/7 zero emission street will be launched next week by the City of London Corporation.

The restriction will apply to Beech Street, a covered street that runs alongside the residential Barbican and Golden Lane Estates (LTT 16 Aug 19). During the 18-month trial, only zero emission vehicles will be allowed access, though exceptions will be made for emergency vehicles, access to the car parks off Beech Street, and vehicles engaged in rubbish collection and deliveries.

Bus route 153 that uses the street is already fully electric.

The restriction will be enforced with automatic number plate recognition cameras.

Compliant vehicles must have a maximum 75g CO2/km; a minimum 20 mile zero emission range; and be at least Euro 6 emission standard.
