The day after…..
Today is the day after the election. The alliance of moderates, liberals, christian democrats and the centre parties, won the election at the national level. Yesterday, it was also a referendum in the city of Stockholm and its fourteen suburban about the congestion charging experiment in Stockholm. The result of the referendum was that the people in the city of Stockholm voted for the charges and the people in all the suburban against, not to surprisingly. One of the first challenges for the new government in the field of traffic and environment will be to decide if there is to be an extension of the congestion charging experiment. It will be interesting to see what they will decide.

The Victorian Transport Policy Institute has an encyclopaedia at the web for free. They have gathered a lot of interesting information about transportation demand management or mobility management. Perhaps the encyclopaedia could be something for the government to look into, if they want to find more innovative management solutions to transportation problems. They can also read about both London an Stockholm measures in congestin charges.
