Extra support to help people living in Dartford and Thurrock benefit from the discounts they are entitled to at the Dartford Crossing have been announced today by Highways England.
44,000 people have now signed up for the Local Residents Discount Scheme, 12,000 more than before Dart Charge launched last November. The scheme offers local residents significant discounts for using the Crossing.
The growth in accounts is evidence that more people than ever are benefitting from discounted journeys at Dartford, as well as the significant journey time savings that Dart Charge is already bringing.
A new telephone option for those using the Local Residents Discount Scheme has been set up to assist customers have been experiencing any issues. Local customers will also be able to book an appointment at one of a series of ‘surgery style’ events that will be held in Dartford and Thurrock over the coming weeks.
