Real Low Emission Zones & Review Regularly

Petition for Real Low Emission Zones & Review Regularly

Effectiveness of existing Low Emission Zones (LEZ) is questionable.

The existing LEZ only included a few street blocks in Causeway Bay, Central and Mongkok. We dubbed as “low emission streets”. LEZ solely regulates buses, but franchised buses only account for 40% of total traffic accounts in busy areas, whilst the remaining 60% consists of other vehicles. That means it cannot achieve real emissions reduction.

In order to accommodate the LEZ , government shifts bus routes and uses older bus models in area out of the LEZ. Neglecting equally polluted areas such as Tsim Sha Tsui.

We petition to﹕

  • Expand the current geographical scope;
  • Prohibit other high emission vehicles from entering low emission zones;
  • Enhance the effectiveness of low emission zones by combining pedestrian zones, for example, combining Des Voeux Road Central pedestrian zone with tram zones.
