Committee to study impact of road pricing

The impact of national road pricing and how soon it could be implemented is to be investigated by a parliamentary committee, it emerged this week.

The inquiry follows the Department for Transport's feasibility study into road pricing, published in July. The Commons transport committee wants to examine whether road pricing should be introduced for certain sections of the network in the short term, the factors that will determine which roads are priced and the technology used.

The inquiry will look at the role that local highway authorities should play in introducing road pricing.

It will also investigate how the transition can be made from individual toll roads and local urban congestion charging schemes in the short term to national road pricing in the longer term.
