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
Only by focusing on active travel, providing efficient zero-emission transport and reducing our dependency on cars, can we improve the health of Londoners, support economic growth, deliver homes and jobs, and make our city an even better place to live.
