Brace for Labour’s War on Cars as Sadiq Khan Draws Up Plans to Use Ulez Cameras to Enforce Pay-per-Mile Road Tax

Millions of drivers are in danger of being hit by a new pay-per-mile road tax under Labour plans seen by the Mail on Sunday.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called for an army of experts to build a “sophisticated” new pricing system for the capital’s roads – using the cameras installed for his hugely controversial ultra low emission zone (Ulez) and Congestion Charge schemes.

It would mean drivers could incur charges based on the length of the trip taken, the congestion levels on the roads and the levels of pollution emitted.

A source said: “It is an open secret in City Hall that it is being worked on.”

A dedicated website called Project 2030 contains a request for engineers to “join TfL [Transport for London] now” to “lead the way in introducing a new, more sophisticated type of road pricing”.

The move has sparked concerns that Labour could roll out similar road taxes across the country, hitting millions. Amid claims that the party is working towards a “carless society”, Transport Secretary Mark Harper has written to Sir Keir Starmer to warn that the Government would legislate to block Labour from bringing in road charging.
