There is one street in Brighton that is formally an LEZ now. Only public buses are affected by this LEZ.
Dates and details
From 1.1.2015 all public buses will be Euro V.
The Public Transport Corridor shown below:
This stretch of road within the air quality management area is formally the LEZ. However, about 98% of bus movements in Brighton travel through this transport corridor entering and leaving the central entertainment-retail hub destination mostly from the east and west. Frequent buses operating in Brighton need to comply with lower emissions on this stretch of road, so will comply in the rest of Brighton (and the surrounding areas where relevant).
Not yet available. Not many signs will be required because compliance agreed with bus operators in advance to be implemented via Traffic Regulation Order and enforced through existing CCTV network.
