Lessons learned from the London congestion charge have, and will continue to, form an important part of the Department’s developing road pricing policy. In particular the fundamental role that improved public transport has played in the success of London’s scheme.

We are working with a number of areas outside London as they consider whether they want to bring forward local pilot schemes to address local congestion. My Department has established the Road Pricing Local Liaison Group which brings together TfL and those other authorities considering local road pricing pilots.
