Cycling groups have welcomed proposals to introduce road pricing in London as part of a drive to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality in the capital.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, said on Tuesday that he wanted London to be a "global leader" in smart road pricing - a system of charging drivers for their use of the roads. Other policies considered include extending the remit of the ultra low emission zone (ULEZ) or applying a daily clean air charge for all car journeys throughout Greater London.
