HC Deb 25 March 2003 vol 402 cc116-7W
Matthew Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the total length of the motorway was that the Commission for Integrated Transport found would be the main area of congestion charging as defined on page 35 of 'Paying for Road Use: Technical report February 2002'; if he will list the junctions of the motorway network that would define the main areas of charging; and if he will make a statement. [102874]

Mr. Jamieson

As the technical report prepared for the Commission for Integrated Transport indicates, their consultants' central case, on the modelling assumptions adopted, implies that charging would apply to about 10 per cent. (some 350 kms) of the motorway network. The report indicates the areas where the charge would apply, but does not identify specific junctions. CfiTs reports are produced independently of the Department and do not represent Government policy.
