Edinburgh LEZ: roll-out of signs across the capital 6 months ahead of launch next summer

3 months ago
Road signs marking out the boundary of Edinburgh’s Low Emission Zone has begun ahead of its launch in June 2024.

The strategy will penalise the most polluting vehicles entering the city centre with a £60 penalty charge.

The rollout of signs forms part of the two-year grace period following the introduction of the 1.2 square mile city centre LEZ that was introduced in Edinburgh on 31 May 2022.

All non-compliant vehicles will be identified using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras then checked with DVLA data to check if the vehicle meets the LEZ emission standards.

Transport and environment convener Scott Arthur met with contractors installing the warning signs near the meadows in Edinburgh’s south side, six months before the LEZ goes live next year.
