Dear Mayor of London and Members of the London assembly,

All the arguments that are true for the introduction of the ultra-low emission zone all the way to the North and South circular also apply beyond it.

There are many schools and nurseries along the North and South Circular, about one every mile directly adjacent to the road. If you include those schools within 100m from these roads then we have about 3 schools or nurseries for each mile.

If you had to cycle along these roads on a daily basis you will quickly notice that more than half of the cars are highly polluting cars and the situation will only get worse in October 2021 when the ULEZ will be extended to the North and South circular, as people will be driving along these roads in order to avoid the charge.

For the sake of our children, our elders and ourselves please do expand the entire Greater London Area.

This can only beneficiate the Greater London communities and improve the general quality of life of people living it. Ultimately this will prevent many cases of cancer and chronic illnesses such as respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

This might have a short term effects in terms of cost for a few people but even them will rip up the benefit in the long terms using a more efficient vehicle, which is cheaper to run.
