Tolls on Severn bridges to be scrapped from 17 December
Welsh secretary announces charges will be abolished two weeks earlier than scheduled
Tolls on the two Severn bridges that link England and Wales are to be scrapped before Christmas, the UK government has announced.
From 17 December there will be no charges for cars and lorries driven between the south-west of England and Monmouthshire.
My #1 aim when I became Secretary of State for Wales was to scrap the Severn Tolls, after over 50 years of charges. Today, I am delighted to announce *toll free, free flow* journeys from 17 December 2018 – UK Government delivering for #Wales pic.twitter.com/7JrDbih2rM
