City Hall today refused to rule out charging motorists £34 a day to drive in central London from 2019.
Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a series of new tolls in a clampdown on pollution. They included a £10 'Toxicity' Charge to be introduced next year.
Mr Khan said he was 'encouraging people' to buy new cars before the introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone.
- The T-Charge will apply in the central London Congestion Zone to diesel and petrol vehicles registered before 2005
- Motorists paying the T-Charge will continue to pay the daily £11.50 Congestion Charge
- The Congestion Zone will become an Ultra Low Emission Zone from 2019 instead of 2020 as proposed by former mayor Boris Johnson
- Drivers of diesel vehicles registered before 2015 face an additional ULEZ charge of £12.50
A City Hall spokesman claimed it was 'very unlikely' any motorist would have to pay all three tolls, amounting to £34, but could not rule it out.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone will be extended in 2020 to a new boundary formed by the North Circular and South Circular roads.
