It is 10 years since the opening of the M6 toll 'pay-as-you-go' motorway.
When the road first opened to drivers on December 9 2003 it cost £3.00 to travel the 27-mile route. In 2013, it now costs motorists travelling in cars £5.50 to use the M6 toll.
The toll motorway runs from Junction 3a on the M6 round the North East of the West Midlands and rejoins the M6 at Junction 11a.
