Wightlink Ferries Update - Portsmouth’s Clean Air Zone from Mon 29th Nov 2021

Portsmouth’s Clean Air Zone (CAZ) comes into operation from Monday, 29 November 2021.

Cars and vans going to and from Wightlink’s car ferry terminal in Gunwharf Road will not be charged. Drivers of these vehicles can continue to use Wightlink’s services as usual. Motorcycles are also exempt.

The only vehicles to be charged will be older taxis, private hire vehicles, buses, coaches and lorries (HGVs).

To find out more, see www.travel.portsmouth.gov.uk/schemes/charging-clean-air-zone

If you’re not sure, you can enter your vehicle’s registration number on the website to see if you will be charged.

The charge will be £10 for taxis and private hire vehicles and £50 for HGVs that are older than Euro 6 if diesel, and older than Euro 4 if petrol.

Portsmouth City Council is introducing the CAZ as some areas of the city centre have levels of pollutants, like nitrogen dioxide, that are likely to remain above safe legal limits unless action is taken now.
