The affected roads under the new scheme are Blackall Street, Cowper Street, Paul Street, Tabernacle Street, Ravey Street, Singer Street, Willow Street, Charlotte Road and Rivington Street. – nextgreencar.com

The only cars allowed to enter during these peak periods will be those classed as Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) which emit less than 75g/km C02, including fully electric, the majority of plug-in hybrids and all hydrogen vehicles and some of the ‘cleanest’, least polluting, hybrid vehicles.
