From this week (21/06/22), drivers and vehicle owners can check whether they will be charged to enter the CAZ when it comes into operation. The zone will cover most of Newcastle city centre as well as routes across the Tyne, Swing, High Level and Redheugh bridges. To use the vehicle checker just go to http://www.gov.uk/clean-air-zo... and enter your registration number.
