New figures have revealed that London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone generated more than £224m last year.
Data obtained by the BBC has found that roughly a third of the money came from penalty charge notices, with the rest from daily charge payments.
It says Transport for London says the money is used to cover “set-up costs” for the ULEZ expansion and “running and improving” the rest of the network.
The zone is due to be expanded on 29 August, encompassing all London boroughs.
Through data obtained via a freedom of information request, the BBC has found ULEZ generated £224,633,003 in 2022, an average of £18.7m a month.
