Conclusions

The introduction of congestion charging in Durham has on the whole been well received by the local population. The charge to access Saddler Street has been successful in reducing traffic levels by 85%.

Durham County Council has received funding under the Transport Innovation Fund (TIF) for further transport modeling work, including the option of introducing a wider congestion charge in the city and building a northern relief road. However, in December 2008 Durham County Council announced that it would not be pursuing a bid to the Transport Innovation Fund, effectively ending its interest in an expanded congestion charge zone in the medium term.
