The increased ULEZ as I understand it includes Heathrow Airport Please advise the number of other airports, airfields both military and civil which fall within the zone. Please advise the estimated number of flights incoming and outgoing for the airfields within the zone. Please advise how emissions for all aircraft using said airfields will be collected . Please advise whether said aircraft shall be subject to charges as is the case for motor vehicles or are they exempt and if so why? Please advise how many train stations fall within the new boundary. Please advise the number of trains using these stations if they are diesel (passenger and goods) Please advise whether any of these trains will be subject to the charge or are they exempt and if so why? I do not live within the boundary but in the North West of England but would welcome your reply. I shall look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 29 August 2023 asking for information about ULEZ.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy.

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you require. ULEZ only applies to motor vehicles on the roads within the zone. It does not apply to other modes of transport, such as aeroplanes or trains. We do not hold then information you have requested regarding flights or trains.

I am sorry we are unable to assist you further on this occasion.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
