New charging regime for Dartford Crossing

Local residents using the Dartford Crossing may be in line for discounts when a new charging regime is introduced, transport minister Dr Stephen Ladyman announced today.
The Department for Transport is looking at increasing charges as a way of controlling traffic at the crossing.It published a consultation document Changes to charges at the Dartford Crossing in December 2006. Consultation closed on 9 March.'We have registered the strong demand for local discounts expressed through the consultation and we accept, in principle, that there is a case for this,' Ladyman said.'The local discount scheme does not alter our plans for discounts for anyone who chooses to use a Dart-Tag [charge card],' he added. 'These drivers will be able to use the crossing for the current £1, regardless of where they live.'
