I saw my first post Congestion Charge traffic jam today.
Long Acre in Covent Garden was completely blocked this lunch-time – as it has been most lunch-times pre congestion charging in fact.
Central London was deserted of cars last Monday, then on Tuesday we saw a few, Wednesday some more, by Friday it looked almost the same as ever, and today it seems nothing has changed.
Of course, this is one person’s (highly subjective) observation, I’m sure traffic will have decreased overall as the car drivers who can easily switch to public transport have done so.
Be very interested to see the results of a proper objective study of it all – my bet is that the impact will be marginal.
Oh, until they start charging £10 a day that is. 😉
