Answered By: 
The Mayor

Approximately £5 million has been spent by TfL to date on preparing for the proposed congestion-charging scheme. This figure covers all work that TfL has undertaken to take forward the ROCOL proposals and prepare the details of the proposed scheme for public consultation. In detail, this work has involved establishing the feasibility of the camera and IT systems, undertaking detailed traffic modelling work so that the Boroughs can be aware of the likely impacts of the proposed scheme and also taking part in extensive consultation with key stakeholders over the last eight months. .
