London First responds to TFL announcement on congestion charge increaseJanuary 6, 2014
In response to TFL’s announcement about increasing the congestion charge to bring it more in line with inflation, David Leam, Head of Infrastructure at business group London First, said:
“We continue to support the charge and accept that it may need to rise to manage worsening congestion. But it remains a blunt instrument.
“Fundamentally, London’s roads lack the capacity to meet demand. So in parallel with more investment and better day-to-day management, London will need more sophisticated road pricing if we want to keep the capital moving.”
