Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Scheme Design

The proposed means to addressing congestion and providing high quality public transport alternatives to car use is a road user charging scheme for central Bristol and Bath. The operational arrangements are still to be confirmed, but a weekday morning road user charge during the peak period (possibly 7am – 10am) could be implemented, with a daily charge of around £4 (€4.80).

Outside of central Bristol and Bath, the North Fringe area of Bristol also suffers from acute congestion. The dispersed nature of the key employment hubs in the Greater Bristol area, and the mix of businesses, housing and other land uses, makes the North Fringe area of Bristol less well suited to a cordon or area-licence-type road user charging scheme. However it is recognised that these congestion ‘hotspots’ needs to be addressed and the suitability of a workplace parking levy has been investigated as part of the TIF development work.
