'Higher Congestion Charges Necessary'

Stockholm will have to increase its system of congestion charges if it wants to live up to its own environmental ambitions, a new study shows.

But experts say that more measures will be necessary to ensure noticeable reductions of carbon dioxide emissions in the Swedish capital.
