Following his victory, the Mayor made a draft order and requested a report from TfL, which summarised the reasons for introducing the scheme.  The scheme was to be introduced to reduce congestion in the centre of the capital following the Draft Transport Strategy of January 2001 which had highlighted the importance that the Mayor placed on tackling this issue.  The charge was to be part of a series of measures to improve the transport system in London and was to combined with public transport improvements and increased enforcement of parking and traffic regulations. The report stated that the scheme was expected to be the most effective in reducing through traffic, reducing congestion both within and outside the zone, improving the speed of buses and the quality of life in central London.  It was stated that improved traffic flows would make London more attractive to business investment.  Substantial net revenues were anticipated, which were to be invested in London's transport system.  It also states that 90% of those who responded to a consultation on the scheme, viewed reducing traffic congestion in central London as 'important'.
