    Default London - Congestion charge start and finish times

    The extension to the congestion charge zone is coming close and my
    usual drive to work will be right through it. As I work shifts there
    will be times when I will be going home or starting work just as the
    zone is starting / finishing.

    Is there any way of knowing exactly when the zone stops operating ? If
    my watch says 1830 will I still have to pay. Is there a couple of
    minutes leeway or can I synchronize my watch with TFL ?

    Obviously the last thing I want is a 100 fine for leaving work a
    minute early ! My workplace is just outside the zone so I can get
    there but it is much quicker driving direct.

    I believe finishing time will move to 6:00 p,m,

    As for timing, I suggest either synchronising your watch with the
    talking clock or trying the car radio!
    94.9 BBC radio London announce the end of congestion charging each day.

    As Dave says, the new finish time is 1800 so you'll be fine at 18.30.

    When you say 'my usual route to work is *through* the zone, do you
    actually work *in* in, if not there may be a free route you can use.

    I work at Paddington so will be able to go around when zone is in
    operation.

    Why not use public transport if not a bike?
