Congestion Charge

Congestion Charge Through Roads

While driving in London means paying a charge of £8 for most, there are some routes which allow you to travel free of charge.

Through Roads
Park Lane will remain free

The current boundary of the congestion charge zone includes Vauxhall Bridge Road, Bresenden Place, Grosvenor Place, Park Lane, Marble Arch, Cumberland Gate and Edgeware Road, which meets with Old Marylebone Road.

This is also the point at which the western extension boundary, Sussex Gardens, junctures the two.

With the extended area of the charge zone now up and running all of the current boundary remains free of charge. This is inclusive of the Vauxhall Bridge to Edgware Road stretch, which divides the entire charge zone in two.

There is a through route in the western extension too. The Westway (A 40) cuts across the north west corner of the new charge zone. As a flyover and main route back onto the zone's circle road The Westway remains entirely free of charge as a through road.
