Severn Bridge: Tolls

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will bring forward legislative proposals to amend the Severn Bridges Act 1992 to allow tolls for Severn Bridge crossings to be paid by credit and debit cards. (201341)

[holding answer 24 April 2008]: We want it to be as convenient as possible for people to pay tolls at the Severn Crossing. But there are some practical obstacles to this and a working group has been set up to look at solving these.

Further consideration will be given once the working group have submitted their findings and recommendations. This is expected to be by early autumn.
