Congestion Pricing May Face Cut in London

London's new mayor is considering a plan to tone down the city's congestion charge system, reducing fees during certain hours.

"Boris Johnson is considering watering down the congestion charge scheme in London, a move that may have national implications for road pricing."

"Motoring groups said that by removing the flat-rate charge in London and making the system fairer, the perception of charging would be altered."

"Mr Johnson is also looking at scrapping an extension of the £8 charge to West London and making discounts during quieter periods to reduce the pressure on motorists. The amount of time that motorists have to pay the charge, and the methods of doing so, will also be reconsidered."
