The HA are also calling for additional revenue to be raised(Half a billion) from bridge tolls to pay for new cameras and infrastructure to support the barrier-less-tolls they would like to introduce. Would it not be cheaper and fairer, to just demolish the tollbooths and return the bridge to free-flow now that the building costs have been payed for?

Some of us remember being promised just that when they dug the first tunnel. frown

It's getting beyond a joke. I have a Dart Tag. They said that we would be charged £1.33 instead of £2 each time, yet the bloody sign still flashes up £2!

The government have not a clue about what theyre doing. A supposedly green government who punish users for driving the quickest route (therefore lowering their carbon output) and trying to price drivers off the road, causing monumental traffic jams (Raising out output) leaving the only option to drive the long way around (raising carbon output) and with this new pricing scheme for tax forcing drivers to drive longer more fuel consuming routes (Raising Carbon output).

Honestly Michael the Mongiest Mega Mongoloid could run this countries infrastructure better!

Turns out i am being charged at the lower rate of £1.33. Suppose it works in their favour not to advertise it.
