Ken Livingstone and the Congestion Charge
A little noticed change in Ken Livingstone's position is that he has pledged not to bring back the congestion charge extension. When the extension was mooted, we got a lot of work paid for by TfL to mitigate the extra traffic. Most spectacularly the junction with Scrubs Lane in front of Brunel Court got a much needed safety scheme. Now we appear to have benefited from the extra investment, and ended up having none of the extra traffic.
