Anyone that drives into the capital could be hit with an increased daily charge of £5.50. 

Transport for London (TfL) is discussing introducing a new Boundary Charge for all drivers in the capital.

The charge will be on top of the already existing Congestion Charge and the expanded Ultra-Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ). 

The increased charge would rise from £3.50 to £5.50 for vehicles not compliant with the ULEZ.

TfL bosses hope that an increase could secure the network an extra £500 million a year - with plans to use the new money for the capital's bus, Tube services, and roads.

But the news has come with some backlash as 51 Conservative politicians signed a letter calling the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, to drop the boundary charges. 

Deputy Leader of GLA Conservatives, Peter Fortune said the charge would impact all: "For the Home Counties, a boundary charge would mean a substantial pay cut of up to £1,000 a year for people who regularly drive into Greater London for work...

“Threatening UK taxpayers with a toll to enter Greater London is the worst way to negotiate a fourth bailout for Transport for London."

Mr Fortune also said that the Mayor's ideas were "threatening and terrible" adding that "Sadiq Khan needs to work constructively with the government to reform TfL and keep London moving."

An expected 675,000 motorists would be hit with the charge, and another 108,000 people would avid the capital due to the charge.
