Watch Kelsey Redmore's report:
Transport Secretary Christopher Grayling has officially announced plans to slash Severn crossing tolls by up to 75%.
Drivers and businesses will benefit from proposed cuts to the tolls following the return to public ownership, Mr Grayling has said.
He was joined by Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns and Monmouth MP David Davies for the announcement.
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 Welsh Affairs Committee has been a longstanding champion of a reduction in fairs for the Severn Bridge.
This is a measure that benefits the people and economy of South Wales.
I am especially pleased that the Government has committed to reviewing the tolls in the future and we can now hopefully look forward to a time when the M48 is free to use.
It seems unfair that all tolls have been scrapped in Scotland and yet we will still have a toll to enter Wales.
Half of drivers say they will plan their journeys to avoid paying tolls, but for drivers from the South of England the Severn Crossing is simplest way to enter Wales. Otherwise it's a lengthy detour.
If the toll is not scrapped we hope that lessons on free-flow, which is in place at the Dartford Crossing, are learnt when they are introduced on the Severn Crossing.
Drivers will want to see plenty of signage and information which makes it clear how and where to pay the toll.
There are delays of up to an hour on services through Cardiff Central, due to a signalling problem at Cardiff Canton train depot.
In particular, Valley services are being affected.
The disruption is expected to last until 0900.
Liberal Democrat Transport spokesperson, Jenny Randerson, has added her voice to calls for Severn tolls to be axed altogether.
We welcome that this starts to address a major impediment to the development of the Welsh economy, and indeed that of SW England, and the Bristol area.
However, this does not go far enough. Lib Dems have campaigned for decades for total removal of tolls. Why should people using this bridge pay for its upkeep when they already pay for road repairs through the tax system, just as users of other motorways do?
Shadow Welsh Secretary Jo Stevens has welcomed the UK Government's announcement that it will reduce tolls on the Severn Bridges, but has urged ministers to consider dropping the charges altogether.
After tireless campaigning from local Labour MPs and many commuters, this long overdue announcement that the government will finally be lowering the toll is good news for businesses and commuters in South Wales.
However, with little concrete information about how the free flow system will work in practice, the devil will be in the detail and I will be pushing Ministers to ensure any changes leave people better off.
I’ll look at the consultation carefully, I encourage as many people and businesses as possible to respond to the consultation and I hope the government will consider seriously the views of those who think the charges need to be dropped entirely.
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.Read the full story ›
