City of London

The ReVeAL project will provide a critical strand of evidence as we work to deliver the Mayor’s vision of a zero-carbon city.

Lilli Matson Director of Transport Strategy, Transport for London


The City of London Corporation provides local authority services for the City of London, the financial district and historic centre of London. The City of London is one of the 33 areas with local authority responsibilities into which London is divided. The City is home to a residential population of approximately 8.000 people. However, over 450.000 people commute into the City every day for work and over 10 million visit as tourists every year.

The City of London Transport Strategy, which was adopted on 23 May 2019, sets out how the City of London Corporation proposes to design and manage the streets of the City to ensure it remains a great place to live, work, study and visit. It aims to prioritise the needs of people walking and cycling by making streets more accessible and safer, as well as to make the most efficient and effective use of street space by significantly reducing motor traffic.

Measure fields in practice

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy proposes a zero-emission zone in central London (including the City of London) by 2025. This goes beyond the emissions standards for the ULEZ (Ultra-low emission zone) and introduces phased restrictions or charges for non-zero-emission capable vehicles. Within ReVeAL’s framework, this pilot will implement a ZEZ that will cover a high-density commercial district in the City of London (the Eastern Cluster) to significantly reduce exposure to air pollution: in addition, it will prepare, setup and carry out a ‘sandbox’ for an advanced UVAR approach within the same area, using cutting edge technology and tools. The Eastern Cluster ZEZ will be helpful to trial the restrictions, technology and supporting measures that will be required to introduce further ZEZs in central London.

London’s ULEZ gets 18 times wider!

From October 25, 2021, the London ULEZ will be 18 times larger. It will expand from Central London to create a single, larger zone up to, but not including, the North Circular Road (A406) and the South Circular Road (A205).

C40 Cities & TDA Webinar: ZEZ 4 Freight – London

C40 Cities & Transport Decarbonisation Alliance Webinar Zero Emission Zones For Freight Webinar Series: Transitioning to Zero Emission Zones and Zero Emission Freight in London    C40 Cities and the Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) are pleased to invite you to the second webinar in the Zero Emission Zones for Freight webinar series. This webinar will showcase the work taking place in London to advance the transition to Zero Emission Zones (ZEZ) and zero emission freight. If you missed our first webinar Zero Emission Zones for Freight – Lessons from the Netherlands, you can watch it here.   What about the webinar Morgan Dye, Principal City Planner at Transport for London will provide an update on zero emission zones in London, including an overview of the guidance developed for local boroughs on this topic, and a discussion of schemes that are already in place or in the pipeline (e.g. London Ultra Low Emission Zone, Hackney’s Ultra Low Emission Streets, City of London’s Beech Street scheme). Philippa Ellis, Project Manager, Energy Systems, at the Greater London Authority, will provide an overview of the results of the Mayor of London/Gnewt Cargo trial. Funded by Innovate UK from 2017 to 2019, the project evaluated the performance, impact and commercial viability of using electric vehicles for last-mile deliveries made by Gnewt in central London. See here for the data and reports released as part of the trial.  Tom Linton-Smith, Lead, Electric Vehicles and Fleets, at the Cross River Partnership, will discuss the Smart Electric Urban Logistics (SEUL) Project. Based at the UPS North London depot, the SEUL initiative has developed new charging technology that overcomes the challenge of simultaneously recharging an entire fleet of electric vehicles without the need for an upgrade to the power supply grid. The technology, which has been developed in partnership with UPS and UK Power…
