Pay-per-mile Congestion Charging Trials

Pay-per-mile Congestion Charging TrialsPay-per-mile road pricing trials will be held in at least one UK city within the next five years.

A draft road transport Bill, published on Friday proposes to grant new powers to charge for each mile driven on congested roads to at least one local authority with Manchester and Birmingham thought to be the favourites.

The new Government proposal will make £200 million per year available to local authorities that agree to introduce road charging schemes to test the technology prior to a national roll out.

Satellite tracking or electronics tags fitted to vehicles and roadside beacons are expected to be used and any profit is to be spent on improving public transport.
