If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ranald Lawrence.

The Central London congestion charging scheme is the only such policy that has actually been implemented in the UK. This talk explains some reasons why it was politically successful and why other schemes in London and elsewhere have failed to achieve public acceptance. It will outline the modelling tools used to forecast the impacts of the policy prior to implementation and the changes in travel patterns that have resulted from this policy – some of which are surprising. In conclusion some more general views on the potential for applications of road pricing will be presented.
