Lethal and illegal: Solving London’s air pollution crisis (IPPR)

2nd November 2016

The follow up to a preliminary study, this major IPPR report explores new policies to reduce air pollution focussing on increases in regulation and road charging, and tax reforms. It recommends investment should then be channelled into sustainable alternatives, including shared transport, and support programmes for those groups most affected during the transition. Beyond 2020, it advises increases in the extent of road pricing in order to reduce the use of petrol vehicles and road miles. The report influenced the air pollution policies of the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
