Wellington commuters may have to pay for the privilege of driving to work in future with the city council's plans to accelerate congestion charges, as soon as it gets the green light from the government.

Parliament's transport and infrastructure committee is currently exploring the possibility of a congestion charge for Auckland - but Wellington City Council has signalled its intention to put a plan up for public consultation within months.
