2nd October 2018 - Severn Bridges to be toll-free from 17 December
The M48 Severn Bridge and M4 Prince of Wales Bridge will be free for all customers before Christmas
The Government has announced 17 December as the date when tolls will cease on the Severn Bridges. The M48 and M4 structures which span the River Severn were adopted by Highways England in January 2018 and in July the second Severn crossing was renamed the Prince of Wales Bridge.
The end of tolling date announcement was made by Alun Cairns, Secretary of State for Wales at the Conservative party conference on 2 October. The original plans to remove tolls, which operate on the Westbound side of the bridge between England and Wales, were first announced by the Government as an election pledge in 2017.
Having a firm date for the end of tolling now means work can begin on plans to remove the toll booths, realign the carriageway and ensure that customers can travel safely over the bridges once the charges are removed. We’ll continue to maintain the bridges as part of our operational maintenance work.
The Severn Bridges operates a TAG account system, where customers can purchase a small device which they fit to their windscreen. This allows them quicker and smoother access through the toll plazas. We’ll be writing to customers in the coming weeks to ensure they know what to do with their TAG accounts and devices once tolling ends.
9th July 2018 - Change of Number for Payment Phonelines
We have changed our 0843 payment numbers to 0343 in order to avoid you call charges. A 03 number is charged at standard geographic rates and is always included in available minutes within call packages.
For the TAG Top Up Phoneline please call 0343 353 5056
For the Violation Payment Phoneline please call 0343 353 5053
