Dartford Crossing Price increase

Dartford Crossing Price increase

To not increase the dart charge prices but to stop further charging

Why is this important?

In the beginning we were promised that toll charges would stop once the crossing had paid for itself. Then the government welched on that agreement and said it would continue until they had a maintenance fund, currently crossing charges make a whopping £70 million profit; but still we continue to pay exorbitant charges; and they continue to increase the prices;
and the money is being used to fund other projects which is in breach of the agreement.

Reasons for signing

  • It isn't ethical to charge more for a very poor service. There is absolutely no alternative for my commute twice a day across, so, along with a significant proportion of the crossing users, we are being sold a poor service we have no control over.
  • £70m annual profit and the pumps in the tunnels are not maintained well enough to stop them failing!
  • We get taxed on everything and then it increases, as the lady that set up the petition said sometimes we all need to stand up together to be heard.👍🏻
