Yunex Traffic has worked closely with the council, the Department for Transport’s Joint Air Quality Unit and the other programme partners to develop a robust and reliable system that will improve air quality across the city centre. The Class C scheme will discourage drivers of the most polluting buses, coaches, taxis and goods vehicles from entering and encourage them to upgrade to cleaner, low or no emission vehicles.
Wilke Reints, Managing Director of Yunex Traffic UK, said: “It is well known that road vehicles are the most polluting form of transport in the UK, with a significant amount of work to be done to reduce emissions and create a cleaner and more sustainable road network.
“Following the research undertaken by Sheffield City Council, we are delighted to be working with the team to deliver a Clean Air Zone solution that meets the city’s specific needs. Once live in 2023, the Clean Air Zone will play a vital role in not only changing drivers’ behaviour, but ultimately reducing transport emissions and improving the health of those living and travelling in Sheffield.”
