Andrews Government Rejects Congestion Pricing Plan for Melbourne

The Age (Melbourne) reports, “Motorists will be spared new tolls on existing roads with the state government rejecting a key road-pricing proposal to reduce congestion. A proposal to charge a $5 levy on motorists entering Melbourne’s CBD was considered but not recommended by Infrastructure Victoria in its 30-year masterplan.” The Victorian state government has also rejected the agency’s alternative proposal to impose variable tolls on area highways.
