Boost for anti-congestion charge campaigners

Campaigners against Manchester’s proposed congestion charge have seized on London’s decision to shrink its zone by half.

London's mayor, Boris Johnson, confirmed last week that he will scrap the recent western extension to the capital's congestion charge zone following a public consultation.

Anti-congestion charge campaigners in manchester claim the move claim leaves Manchester increasingly isolated.

“Manchester will simply become a uniquely expensive place to work and live, and help drive investment elsewhere,” said Stop the Charge, a coalition of anti-road pricing groups.

Almost two million Manchester residents have until Thursday (December 11) to cast their vote in a referendum to decide the scheme’s future.
