Government green light for Stockholm charge

November 20, 2006

Sweden’s transport minister has appointed a committee to reintroduce Stockholm’s congestion charge.

The decision suggests the scheme will return in a few months after voters approved it in a referendum in September. But questions remain about the use of revenue, with the new centre-right government keen for it to fund a new western by-pass for Stockholm.
