Opposition is growing in Denmark to a government proposed congestion charge for Copenhagen. The plan to charge for entry into the capital was first put forward at the end of 2011 and the government is expected to put the project for a parliamentary vote in a few weeks. However opposition parties are hoping to block the proposal before then.

Opponents of the scheme are demanding a more thorough environmental impact report on the consequences of the scheme. They would also like to examine possible alternatives to congestion charges such as GPS-based road pricing. The mayor of one neighbouring council, Genthofte, is threatening a challenge through the courts.
