While London’s £5 congestion charge has largely been favourably received, the CBI said road users, nationally, were not getting a fair deal.
The CBI is part of a steering group formed by transport secretary Alistair Darling, tasked with looking at road charging in the UK, the Independent on Sunday reported.
Michael Roberts, director of business environment at the CBI, said: ‘Britain has the most congested roads in Europe, but motorists are the most highly taxed. There is a case for delivering better results in terms of value of money.’
But he added that a new system to replace road tax must generate sufficient cash to be invested in the roads.
Darling is due to publish a 10 year government transport plan early next year following the findings of the steering group.
