Should we be aiming for a car-free London? Is pricing cars off the road the right thing to be doing?

With an air pollution crisis and competing pressures on London’s streets for cycling, buses, walking and freight, these are the big questions our expert panel will be addressing.

Join us to hear leading experts on London’s streets and roads debate the future of road pricing in the capital.

The talk will feature Gary Raccuja, who won the Wolfson Prize for Economics for his proposal ‘Paying for road use could be miles better’. Debating the issue alongside him will be:

  • Joe Irvin, Chief Executive of Living Streets and former advisor in Number 10
  • Natalie Chapman, Head of Policy for the Freight Transport Association and Deputy Chair of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Transport Committee
  • Caroline Pidgeon AM MBE, Londonwide Liberal Democrat Assembly Member and Deputy Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee

Attendees must register through Eventbrite and entry will be first come first serve on the night.
