Mayor turns his back on carbon reductions

27 November 2008
Campaign for Better Transport deplores today’s decision to abolish the western extension of the congestion charge zone. This has happened in the very week that Boris Johnson promised to make London “the world’s leading city in delivering carbon reductions.”

Richard Bourn, Campaign for Better Transport’s London campaigner, comments:

“The congestion charge had successfully reduced traffic in the Western extension by 10%. Now traffic will grow again and congestion and carbon emissions with it. London is rapidly losing its reputation as a leading city in progressive transport and environment policies.”
