145 schools would benefit from better air quality if ULEZ expanded

According to City Hall analysis, if the ULEZ expanded London-wide, 145 schools, most of them in outer London, would meet the tighter WHO interim target of 20 µg/m3 NO2.

Currently all of outer London’s monitoring stations are exceeding the new WHO recommended guideline for harmful pollutant NO2 of 10 ug/m3.

80 per cent of outer London’s monitoring stations are currently showing concentrations above the interim WHO recommended guideline for NO2 of 20ug/m3.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “The health of Londoners across the capital is being damaged by air pollution and I’m doing all I can to improve it. This data shows how important it is to take bold action that benefits all Londoners. If the zone is expanded, five million people living in the outer boroughs would also be able to breathe cleaner, less polluted air and this is why I’ve been consulting on expanding the ULEZ London-wide.
“Deadly air pollution contributes to children developing stunted lungs, asthma and a whole host of other health issues and new research has shown that it also puts people at increased risk of developing dementia. We need to act now to protect the most vulnerable from the worst consequences of toxic air and build a safer, fairer, greener and more prosperous city for everyone.”
