CIHT proposes road user charging

The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transport (CIHT) has called on the government to consider introducing road user charging following its mid-term review yesterday.

The CIHT has suggested road user charging would make a good funding stream for transport infrastructure projects citing it as having “real potential to deliver social, environmental and economic benefits”.

CIHT chief executive Sue Percy stressed the importance that charges are not viewed as a road tax by the public, going on to say that in order to be accepted any system would have to be fair and proportional, and involve sustained investment in the capacity and quality of viable alternatives to road travel, for example public transport.

The CIHT represents over 12,000 people who work in the highways and transportation sector.
