A Toll Free Dartford Tunnel For Motorcyclists

When Big Ben tolls midnight on 31st March, another sort of toll, those for motorcycles using the M25 Dartford Crossing, will disappear, a sure sign say the BMF that the benefits of travelling by powered two wheeler are increasingly being recognised.

In welcoming the move, the 140,000 strong British Motorcyclists Federation, Britain‚s most influential rider group and a strong campaigner on such issues, points out that it has always sought to have tolls removed on the basis that motorcycles cause negligible wear and tear and can actually ease traffic flows.

This was part of its submission to the Highways Agency consultation process that resulted in last April’s decision by the Secretary of State to finally remove motorcycle tolls as from midnight on 31st March this year.

In line with its long held position on tolls, the BMF first made a case for exemption during the setting up of the Thames crossing‚s private finance initiative in the late eighties and has also lobbied for an exclusive motorcycles only‚ toll-free channel. However the latter has not proved possible and motorcyclists should continue to use the existing channels, the difference being, they won‚t have to pay!
