The tolls drivers pay to cross the Severn Bridge are to be cut by up to 75% by next year, the Transport Secretary has announced.
Speaking ahead of his visit to Wales, Chris Grayling said the Government's proposals would see the prices paid for all vehicles halved when the crossings return to public ownership.
The Government is also looking at removing toll barriers and introducing free-flow tolling on the Severn Crossings.
Under the proposals:
- Cars will pay £3.00 instead of £6.70.
- Small buses or vans will pay £3.00, down from £13.40
- Lorries and coaches will pay £10 instead of £20
- Blue Badge holders and motorcycles will continue to be exempt from the tolls.
The money raised will pay for the operation and maintenance of the crossings.
