AMSTERDAM - Road pricing to reduce rush hour traffic will be introduced in the course of the coming government term. Plans for this measure are included in the coalition agreement presented on Wednesday.

Until now plans for road pricing were not scheduled to take effect until 2012.

The coalition accord also states that there will be trials with free public transport for specific target groups in city and regional transport. Shops opening illegally on Sundays will also be addressed.

The coalition accord does not have a clear title, but the introductory chapter has the heading ‘Samen werken, samen leven’ (‘Work together, live together’).
