A national road pricing scheme may be one of the key recommendations to come out of Climate Assembly UK, the citizens’ assembly set up by the House of Commons to advise on how the UK should meet its net zero emissions target by 2050.
At the second weekend gathering of the assembly last month, reforming how we pay for road use was the key idea presented to a sub-group of members considering surface transport.
The assembly convened for a third time last weekend. Members voted on policy options, ranking them in order of preference.
The assembly will meet for a final time on the weekend of 20-22 March, after which its recommendations will be published.
In a separate development, campaign group Friends of the Earth and consultant Transport for Quality of Life are calling for road charging in the form of an ‘eco levy’, with revenues used to improve public transport.
