Western Extension of the Congestion Charging zone set to be scrapped

19 November 2010

Good news for patients, visitors and staff who use their cars to drive to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital—the Western Extension of the Congestion Charging zone will be abolished from the end of the charging day on Christmas Eve.

Good news for patients, visitors and staff who use their cars to drive to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital—the Western Extension of the Congestion Charging zone will be abolished from the end of the charging day on Christmas Eve.

Thank you to all staff, patients and visitors who supported the Trust by having their say during the recent public consultation on this issue.

We supported the removal of the Western Extension because it included the hospital and therefore unfairly disadvantaged staff, patients and visitors to the hospital.

For example, staff living in areas poorly served by public transport or working unsocial hours, patients unable to use public transport, and visitors living a long way from the hospital, all had no choice but to drive to the hospital and pay the Congestion Charge.
