Sadiq Khan today sounded the death knell for the internal combustion engine with proposals for a total ban on petrol and diesel vehicles in Greater London.
The Mayor's new transport strategy outlined plans for a 'Zero Emissions Zone' in the capital by 2050.
The document included a series of radical measures to encourage Londoners to abandon their cars and take up walking and cycling.
The key points are:
- Petrol and Diesel engines banned in London from 2050
- Central London to be a 'zero emission zone' by 2025
- Car parking spaces banned or restricted in new housing developments
- New road tolls based on distance travelled and emissions
- Car journeys in London to be cut by 3m a day
- All Londoners expected to walk or cycle for at least 20 minutes a day
- Fatal road accidents 'to be eliminated from London's streets' by 2041
