Tolls go up this weekend
7:20am Friday 5th October 2012 in News
THE Dartford Crossing tolls go up this Sunday – and the leader of Thurrock Council is urging residents to get their discount now.
Cllr John Kent said: “There’s not much I like about the tolls, but the Thurrock discount isn’t a bad deal for residents.
“If you are a resident who uses their personal car there is no need to pay extra. Sign up now and make a huge saving.”
The tolls are going up to £2 a crossing for cars, but people who live in Thurrock can apply for a special Dart-Tag which makes it 20p each way.
Residents pay an annual registration fee of £10 which entitles them to 50 free journeys per year and 20p for any additional journeys in the same year.
