As figures released today reveal that the Dart Charge reduces journey time, a new Highways England video shows the Crossing's seven month transformation.
The removal of the toll booths and introduction of the Dart Charge is reducing journey times for drivers using the Dartford Crossing.
New figures released by Highways England show that journeys over the crossing are now up to 56% faster, with drivers at peak times saving around an hour and a half every week, up to 14 minutes southbound and seven minutes northbound.
The Dart Charge means drivers can pay online, by phone, post, or in a shop instead of paying cash at a barrier.
