Clean Air Zone enforcement

We enforce Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone using ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) which record the registration plate of vehicles travelling within the A4540 Middleway (but not the Middleway itself).

Motorists are made aware when they are about to enter the Clean Air Zone as every entry to the zone is clearly signed. The signs have a master cloud symbol which is used on all clean air zones. Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone has the letter “D” which indicates the Clean Air Zone class and all the boundary signs are in white background. There are also blue background advance warning signs on the main approaches to the zone with cloud symbol, which are placed to allow motorists time to take alternative routes to avoid entering the CAZ. The signs are there not just to alert drivers on their first time within the zone, but also to remind anyone who regularly travels through the zone of the need to pay a CAZ charge.

Advance warning signs have been installed on key routes to inform drivers of the approach to the Clean Air Zone. Additional advance warning signs have also been installed at key locations around the Middleway to provide further warning of the Clean Air Zone. Regulatory signs will inform the driver of the entry and exit points of the Clean Air Zones. All the signs carry advice that charges may apply.

There are 67 cameras within the zone.
