AA: Drivers from England to Wales would pay twice

The prospect of a new toll road relieving pressure on the M4 has reportedly been welcomed by motoring groups.

Nick Payne of the Road Haulage Association is quoted in the Times (£) as saying that the road would "make a big difference to traffic in and out of Wales".

A spokesman for the AA, while welcoming a relief road, said that charging a toll on the road would “double the injury” for drivers as many would already have paid £6.20 to cross the Severn Bridge.
