The Congestion Charge:

Congestion charging is a way of ensuring that those using valuable and congested road space make a financial contribution. It encourages the use of other modes of transport and is also intended to ensure that, for those who have to use the roads, journey times are quicker and more reliable. The London scheme requires drivers to pay £8 per day if they wish to continue driving in central London during the scheme‘s hours of operation

The following explains why the Mayor decided to introduce congestion charging in central London

  • London suffers the worst traffic congestion in the UK and amongst the worst in Europe.
  • Drivers in central London spend 50% of their time in queues
  • Every weekday morning, the equivalent of 25 busy motorway lanes of traffic tries to enter central London
  • It has been estimated that London loses between £2–4 million every week in terms of lost time caused by congestion

When does it operate:

Current Congestion Operating Hours are 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays.
