The announcement of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expansion in August across all of Greater London has seen mass debate. 

The expansion will see drivers that do not meet emission standards pay a daily charge of £12.50 when driving within the zone. 

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan created the zone with the aim to cut pollution in the region and improve the overall air quality in the capital.

However many drivers have shared their frustration with the expansion knowing that they will have to pay the fee or swap their vehicles. 

Although the Mayor has created a scrappage support scheme to help those that are eligible afford the charge, many are still not sure if the expansion is a good idea. 

However, now new research has revealed the amount of air pollution that covers London. 

The map created by Imperial College London called 'London Air' uses the annual mean of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) based on measurements.

The measurements decipher the level of air pollution with a range from 0-60 and grounds of passing the annual mean objective to failing the annual mean objective.

London Air shows the measurements for London, showing the amount in central London and moving out to the suburban areas.

The most congested area of London, including the City of London, Covent Garden, Westminster and Victoria are shown to be the worst affected. 

Main roads and travel link spots in the highest area with dark red to black areas, seeing it in the fails annual mean objective. 

Romford Recorder:

But areas that are just a short tube ride away including Angel and Hackney are less affected by air pollution.

A mix of yellow and green shades shows that although high, it is in the middle of the scale and shows signs of improvement. 

Moving out to more suburban areas, the shades range from a mix of blues, showing a decrease in pollution. 

Such as the region of Romford that is mostly covered by a light blue shade, giving it a score of 31 and placing it in the passes section.
