London congestion zone reduced

The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is to remove the western extension of the capital's congestion charge zone, following a consultation.

The extension will not be removed until 2010 at the earliest.

The consultation attracted nearly 28,000 responses.

Overall, 69% of individuals and businesses supported the removal of the extension.

Just 19% stated that they wanted the extension kept as it is, and 12% supported changing the scheme to improve the way that it operates.

Until it is removed, the £8 daily congestion charge continues to apply.

The original congestion charge zone in central London will remain in place.
