Future of the Severn Bridges


In Transport Questions today I requested a meeting with the Department for Transport to discuss the future operation of the Severn Bridges, including the abolition of the tolls after a long local campaign.

The move into public ownership is a long overdue step in the right direction. It’s vitally important that the Government now carefully plan for the future, including a timetable for removing the toll booths. I will be holding the Government to account on these issues, and will continue to speak up for road users and businesses in Newport East who have been hard hit by the tolls over the years.
