You asked

My request is for two specific points. 1) I would like to know when Kingston upon thames became a low emission zone and as such cameras began to record vehicles contravening this zone and generating charges. 2) specifically, when was the signage erected marking the perimeter of the zone, more specifically when was the signage erected at the junction of South Lane, Malden Way and the Kingston Bypass /A3.
