There is still no news on the public consultation for the future of the Severn Bridges.
I have asked for more details on the timing of the consultation, or when they return to public ownership.
I told the BBC: “According to the last estimate, the bridges will return to public ownership as early as the end of 2017 – that doesn’t leave much time for the government to sort this out.”
“I welcome the government looking at free-flow technology and lower tolls – although I would like them to reduce the cost even further.”
“I also want Ministers to give assurances that if we do go for free-flow, then we keep the jobs associated locally for those who currently work for Severn River Crossings plc”
