Sadiq Khan admits he faces pausing hated ULEZ plans amid fury over whacking drivers with extra £12.50 charge | The Sun

SADIQ Khan today admitted his controversial plan to expand ULEZ could be quashed if the High Court rules it illegal.

A judgement on the legality of the scheme, which has sparked an uproar in outer London boroughs, is expected tomorrow.

Speaking to ITV, the Mayor of London conceded: "There are a number of things the court could say and some of those could lead to a delay – the court could quash the order I made to expand ULEZ.

"So there are a number of things it could do from quash the decision to expand ULEZ to require, hypothetically speaking, to reconsult.

"I am someone who believes in the court of law."

The Ulez expansion is due to come in to force on August 29th.

It will see all drivers in Greater London whacked with a £12.50 daily charge if their car doesn't meet green standards.

The London boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Harrow and Hillingdon along with Surrey County Council have asked the High Court to rule the expansion as illegal.

Mr Khan is also under huge pressure from his own party to rethink Ulez.

The scheme was credited with helping the Tories cling on to power at the Uxbridge and South Ruislip by-election last week.
