The UK Government has recently proposed halving tolls at the Severn crossings when the current concession comes to an end, whilst the Welsh Labour Government is currently lobbying for tolls to be scrapped altogether.
This consultation seeks views on the proposed reductions, and the draft legislation that would implement the reductions.
It also discusses other issues, including the possibility of replacing toll barriers with ‘free flow’ tolling, where drivers pay electronically with no need to stop.
I know that a large number of constituents in Cardiff Central regularly commute across the Severn Crossings, so I would recommend you make your views known and respond to this consultation.
The consultation closes on 10th March 2017 at 11:45pm.
