Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base
Durham’s congestion charging zone is one depicted by a cordon-based scheme, where drivers must pay to enter a fixed zone. Essentially the scheme covers just one road, Saddler Street, which provides access to Durham’s World Heritage site on Durham’s peninsula. The road provides access to the Market Place, Cathedral and castle, but was also being used as a temporary car park by shoppers, with the driver staying in the vehicle while the passenger visited the shops.
The £2 (€2.40) charge is payable on exit from the area between 10:00am and 4:00pm Monday to Saturday. Entrance and exit from the area is free at all other times.
There are a number of categories of road users who are exempted from the charge:
