Scheme Design

The Transport Innovation Fund (TIF)

Cambridgeshire has been awarded a total of £2.4 million (€2.9 million)  of TIF funding to date1].

Cambridgeshire also submitted a further bid for £500m (€600m) in October 2007 for a TIF Congestion Charging Scheme. Investigation and public engagement continues.

The proposed charging scheme in Cambridge would have the following criteria:

  • It would be a one-off charge for anyone driving into, out of, or within Cambridge;

  • It would operate between the hours of 7.30-9.30am (Monday-Friday);

  • The proposed charge would be in the range of £3-5 (€3.60-€6).

The intention of the proposed charge would be to reduce traffic entering the city by 10% when compared to today’s figures. The figure below shows the proposed congestion charging scheme in Cambridge.
