The Danish media is reporting that the government is seriously split over the question of the introduction of a congestion charge in Copenhagen and is thinking of abandoning the project.

After months of opposition in and out of parliament it is thought that the government may only announce plans for more investment in public transport but will say nothing at present about a congestion charge on traffic in the city.

The main difficulties have been between ministers from different coalition parties in the government, the finance minister from the Socialdemokraterne party (S) and the tax minister from the Socialistisk Folkeparti (SF). The SF has been in favour of subsidising public transport with money from the congestion tax. But now it is estimated that the charge may not bring in as much as was originally thought
