In order to help critical workers during the Coronavirus crisis, Transport for London has decided not to charge people for driving in the congestion charge zone.
It’s also suspended the ULEZ and Low Emission Zone charges.
Mayor Sadiq Khan said, though, that this shouldn’t lead to people driving who otherwise wouldn’t, “This is not an invitation to take to your cars,” he said. “To save lives we need the roads clear for ambulances, doctors, nurses and other critical workers”.
As well as supporting the capital’s critical workers, particularly those in the NHS, the suspension is also designed to support the supply chain, to keep supermarkets fully stocked.
