M25 Dartford Crossing payment changes
Below are changes to how you pay to use the Dartford Crossing on the M25 which will take effect Wednesday 1st October 2014.
You will no longer have to pay at the barriers, instead you’ll be able to pay in advance, or up to midnight the day after crossing. (The crossing will still be free between the hours of 10pm and 6am) the charges for not paying are:
Non Payment £70 (Reduced if paid within 14 days to £35)
Non payment within 28 days £105
There will be 4 methods of payment; on line, by phone, via a payzone retail outlet and by post.
The aim of the new scheme will help reduce congestion at the crossing.
