London's Congestion Charge could increase by 15 per cent under Transport for London plans
The Congestion Charge in central London could be increased by 15 per cent under plans put forward by Transport for London.
The capital’s transport provider wants to raise the daily £10 fee for those travelling inside the designated zone to £11.50.
The increase, TfL says, will raise an additional £84million by 2017/18, which would be spent on improving the transport network.
Under TfL’s proposals, on which it is holding a public consultation, daily charges for using the CC Auto Pay system would increase from £9 to £10.50 if paid on the day, or £14 if paid the following day.
TfL says the increase brings the congestion charge in line with inflation when compared with other transport cost increases over time.
A ten-week public consultation on the plans ends on March 14. To have your say visit www.tfl.gov.uk/ccyourviews or telephone 0844 544 9780 for an information leaflet.
