View original Addison Lee responds to mayor’s Congestion Charge plan

Responding to the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s proposal to remove the congestion charge exemption for Private Hire Vehicles (PHVs), taxi firm taxi firm Addison Lee published research which suggests that the proposals will not help reduce congestion and pollution and will “hold back the industry’s investment in cleaner vehicles“. Addison Lee is instead calling for an increase in the overall charge by £1 to £12.50 whilst retaining the PHV exemption, as well as improving the network of rapid electric chargers available for the industry to switch to lower emission models.

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
