Bridge rates increase

MOTORISTS are being warned to start carrying extra cash as the toll prices on Dunham Bridge near Gainsborough and Retford are set to increase.

Dunham Bridge Co. say that the European Court of Justice has declared that toll charges are subject to VAT and the UK Government has decided that the extra charge should be passed onto bridge users.

As of 1st April, prices will be: 36p for cars, vans and minibuses, 10p for motorcycles, 15p for tri-cars, 45p for vehicles with trailers, 60p for coaches and £1 for lorries or six-wheeler coaches.
