Halve tolls on the Severn Bridges

Nick Ramsay and local MP David Davies have been campaigning to reduce tolls on the Severn Bridges and were delighted with the Chancellor's announcement in March 2016 that the Severn tolls are to be halved once they revert to public ownership, which is expected in 2018.

Nick said, "The toll to enter Wales has long been seen as a barrier to investment and economic growth in Wales.  I am delighted that David Cameron's Government has confirmed that as soon as the Bridges revert to public ownership, the tolls will be halved, giving hauliers, commuters and local people instant relief.

"Halving the tolls is a clear statement that Wales and particularly Monmouthshire are open for business.  I support maintaining a reduced toll to ensure we can afford to maintain both bridges, which are vital gateways into South Wales.

"Halving the tolls is a shot in the arm for the South Wales economy and will help deliver economic security for families in Monmouthshire and the rest of South Wales."
