This Working Paper extends the study reported in Working Paper 400, which used the MVA START model for London, disaggregated into three income groups for each of car owners and non car owners, to investigate the distributional effects of road pricing in London. At the time of that study, it was not possible to obtain, from the disaggregate model, output on trips, flows and speeds. The further work reported in this Working Paper has involved extending the evaluation procedures to provide output on trips, flows and speeds; assessing the results from the previous study in tms of these indicators, and testing a fourth charging structure. In all, four charging structures were tested. It is concluded that the additional charging structure tested here, with the original LPAC charging structure, but with charging extended to the off peak in inner London, is by far the most effective in terms of overall benefits, and is similar in its distributional effects to the original LPAC structure.
