Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Mayor Boris Johnson plans to create an ultra-low-emission zone for traffic in central London to improve air quality and spur the development and take-up of vehicles that produce little or no air pollution.

Johnson asked Transport for London, which oversees the capital’s transportation network, to examine introducing a requirement for all vehicles using the center of the capital during working hours to be zero- or low-emission starting in 2020.

“Creating the world’s first big-city ultra-low-emission zone has the potential to be a game-changing moment in the quality of life of our great capital,” Johnson said in a speech today at City Hall. “This would deliver incredible benefits in air quality and stimulate the delivery and mass use of low-emission technology.”
