East Rochester Way entering the Low Emission Zone
East Rochester Way entering the Low Emission Zone
The Rochester Way Relief Road section of the A2 was opened in 1988.

Despite significant improvements in recent years, London's air pollution is still a concern. The Low Emission Zone (LEZ), which covers much of Greater London, was introduced in 2008 to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles to become cleaner.

To drive within it without paying a daily charge these vehicles must meet certain emissions standards that limit the amount of particulate matter (a type of pollution) coming from their exhausts. On 3 January 2012, the LEZ emissions standards became more stringent. More vehicles are affected, and those that were already affected need to meet tighter emissions standards (LinkExternal link Transport for London).
A2 Road
The A2 runs 72 miles from Borough TQ3279 : Great Dover St in London to Dover, through Kent, formerly known as the Dover Road or Great Dover Road. It follows roughly the course of the Roman Watling Street and historically it has always been an important road because it connects London with Canterbury and the port of Dover. In the 18th and 19th century it was turnpiked and given its present designation in the 1920s.
