No more tolls

When the original Severn Bridge was opened in 1966 a road toll was charged to recover the construction costs.   Thirty years later, the Second Severn Crossing was opened, also with a toll to recover construction costs.   The current toll is £6.40 for a private car, collected on the journey into Wales.  The latest estimate is that those construction costs will have been recovered by around 2017 or 2018 when the bridges will pass back into public ownership.   The aim of this petition by Steve Webb and the local Liberal Democrats is to make sure that the tolls do not continue beyond this date.   This would benefit residents and businesses on both sides of the bridges.Severn_Bridge_Tolls.jpg
