London Congestion Charge
London Congestion Charge On 17 February 2003, one of the world?s largest and most ambitious plans to tackle urban congestion began, with the introduction of a congestion charge for central London. It is hoped that this £5 daily charge for many vehicles entering the Inner Ring Road charging zone will significantly reduce the level of congestion faced by those travelling into and out of central London both by private and by public transport. This Briefing Note by Laura Blow, Andrew Leicester and Zoë Smith aims to provide a guide to the workings of the London congestion charge. Published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
