Hauliers heading into London have been warned that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has confirmed the proposed changes to the Congestion Charge.
The changes reduce the hours of operation to 0700-1800 during the week and 1200-1800 at the weekend and bank holidays from 21 February 2022. The announcement also confirms that the charge will remain at the current £15 rate.
Natalie Chapman, Logistics UK’s head of policy – south, commented: “We welcome the announcement the Congestion Charge will revert back to the original weekday timings before the Covid-19 pandemic. This will provide additional flexibility to retime deliveries to less congested times.
“However, Logistics UK is disappointed that the charges will apply on weekends and bank holidays, and that the £15 charge level will be retained, but with the fleet autopay discount removed.”
