Restore London's air quality is one of Sadiq Khan's promises as the new mayor of London
Restore London's air quality is high priority in the new mayor of London Sadiq Khan's manifesto.
Tackling the housing crisis, Freeze transport fares and make London safer are the other important points in his manifesto.
Sadiq Khan says he will pedestrianise Oxford Street and prioritise measures to improve London’s air quality. He will consult on bringing forward the Ultra-Low Emission Zone making it harder to bring polluting vehicles along major arterial routes or a wider section of central London. Transport for London will also set a target of only buying clean electric or hydrogen buses from 2020 to help manufacturers invest in clean bus technology. He opposes the construction of a third runway at Heathrow Airport and promises to embark on a major tree-planting programme across London, in partnership with businesses and the public sector.
