Sev­ern toll to be scrapped

Practical Caravan - - Caravan Cake Chat -

If you use the Sev­ern bridges to tour Eng­land and Wales, you’ll be pleased to hear that the toll, re­duced in Jan­uary this year, will be axed on 17 De­cem­ber. The move was an­nounced by Welsh Sec­re­tary Alun Cairns at the Con­ser­va­tive Party Con­fer­ence, in a de­ci­sion that’s de­signed to boost South Wales’s econ­omy by en­cour­ag­ing tourism and im­prov­ing busi­ness growth with a free flow be­tween Eng­land and Wales. The Sev­ern Cross­ings toll has been in place since the orig­i­nal bridge opened in 1966.
