Since their introduction in 2019, an increasing number of ULEZ have been popping up throughout the UK. Aiming to increase the air quality in the surrounding area, these ULEZ have meant that there is more pressure on the construction sector to provide lifting solutions that are able to operate in these areas.

How do ULEZ work?

Contrary to popular belief, ULEZ do not have any traditional barriers or tolls where you pay, they use number plate recognition.  A camera will recognise your vehicle which will then be checked against the UK-registered and non-UK registered vehicles, this will then show whether or not your vehicle meets the ULEZ emissions standard. These cameras are also able to detect if your vehicle is exempt, registered for some form of discount or if you have already paid a daily charge.

Why are ULEZ expanding?

Over the past 5 years, there has been an increasing amount of focus on air pollution and the effects that it can have on people’s health.

Air pollution is a national problem and many cities throughout the UK such as London are still exceeding the recommended legal limits for pollution.

One of the biggest sources of air pollution is traffic and construction sites. In London, to combat the issue, the Government implemented the first 24-hour ULEZ in April 2019.  It required vehicles to meet tough standards when it came to emissions.  As a result, there has been a 44% reduction in the amount of pollution and roadside nitrogen dioxide.

So, how do ULEZ affect the construction sector?

Back in 2020, low emission zones for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) were enforced which required all constant-speed engines in London to meet Euro V standards. This means that any piece of machinery that uses generators such as bulldozers, cranes, and forklift trucks can be subjected to a charge.

How can GGR Group help?
