"While TfL recognises the increase may not be widely welcomed, it is vital to maintain the effectiveness of the scheme. The increase will ensure the charge remains an effective deterrent to all but the most essential journeys into the centre of London.
"It will also contribute an additional income of £82.7m over the course of the next five years, which will be re-invested into London’s transport network – including modernising London’s roads infrastructure."
