Dispatches Channel 4 tonight

"Bottleneck Britain" - Dispatches.

Looks at the pay-as-you-drive proposal, also called the "TOLL TAX".

Remember earlier postings about the M6 TOLL road.

How successful are toll roads in the UK ?

Traditionally traffic bottlenecks have been solved by building new roads but this doesn't actually reduce congestion. A little like being fat and solving the problem of having no trousers that fit by going out and buying a bigger pair of trousers....
We discussed some of your ideas today - remember to develop these, and refer to a place which has already tried them out. How successful were they in this place ? Why do you think they would work in King's Lynn ?
