Back again
Ok, back again. The break lasted for a little more than two weeks. We get a foretaste of the summer in Karlstad today, the sun shines and the birds are singing. It’s easy to be in good spirit such a day.
Have you heard about the new congestion charges in Stockholm coming up? The congestion charge is reintroduced by the 1 of August 2007 with some small changes. The money from the charges will be used for investments in road structure and not in public transport and the charges will be deductible for both companies and private persons. There are some more changes and also July will be free of charges. The parliament will make the final decision before summer. I wonder if the new scheme will serve the purpose of a better environment and less congestion?
