London road charging schemes suspended

Transport for London has announced that from 23 March all road user charging schemes in the capital will be suspended until further notice.

This move has been made to ensure London's critical workers, particularly those in the NHS, can travel round London as easily as possible during this national emergency. It also supports the supply chain to keep supermarkets fully stocked.  

As there has been a reduction in the number of tube stations open and some critical workers may want to avoid public transport, driving to work could be the preferred option, which is why the charges have been lifted.
