Coronavirus: London congestion charge brought back with price rise

The congestion charge for people driving into central London will be reintroduced on Monday under the terms of a £1.6bn government bailout.

It follows a deal in which Transport for London (TfL) secured emergency funding to keep Tube and bus services going until September.

From 22 June, the congestion charge will also rise from £11.50 to £15.

Changes will happen “as soon as practicable”, the Department for Transport said.

TfL said the congestion charge would be reinstated in London on Monday and would run between 07:00 and 22:00, seven days a week.

A system of reimbursement for NHS workers in place before the congestion charge was suspended on 23 March will be extended to care home workers.
