12 Dec 50 Years of Tolls to End – Infographic
On the 17th of December, the tolls on the Prince Charles Bridge will be removed making road travel along the M4 free between England and Wales.
The tolls have taken £1.44 billion.
Since the second crossing opened in 1996, nearly 300 million cars have used the bridge.
The average commuter will now save £1400-a-year.
The abolition of the tolls is expected to bring £100 million to the Welsh economy.
The concensus on both sides of the Severn Estuary is that the scrapping of the tolls will help facilitate deeper economic relations between South Wales and Gloucestershire.
