Congestion Charges Even More Successful
A newly completed study reveals that last year’s congestion charge experiment in Stockholm was even more successful than previously believed.
Radio Stockholm reports that researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology, have found that on the average rush hour traffic was reduced by 22 percent during the trial. That is well over the target of 10 to 15 percent.
The report has not been officially published yet. But according to Radio Stockholm, the researchers say that the results would have been even better had the Essingeleden motorway through the city been more accessible.
