The road to faster and smoother journeys at the Dartford Crossing, one of the UK’s busiest transport gateways, has started with the launch of Dart Charge.
An intensive weekend of roadworks saw the final cash payment at the crossing and the beginning of work to remove the payment booths. Dart Charge launched at 6am on Sunday as planned.
Dart Charge is a new way to pay the Dartford Crossing road user charge, removing the need for drivers to stop at a barrier. Instead, drivers now pay online, by phone or post or at one of thousands of retail outlets nationwide. Payment can be made in advance or by midnight the day after crossing.
