ROAD PRICING AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT PROVISION IN LONDON

There is considerable interest in the possibility of introducing Road Pricing in congested urban areas in the U.K., and London is generally seen as prime candidate given its particularly severe road congestion problems. Key issues include whether suitable charging technology is yet available; the equity of Road Pricing; whether in practice Road Pricing will simply be a means of boosting the Treasury's tax-take rather than improving conditions for travelers; and the likely political acceptability of Road Pricing given the attachment of the British public to their cars. This paper examines Road Pricing and its development and resulting policy implications in greater detail by using an aggregate strategic model developed for the radial London travel market.
