No Toll Increase 2010

23 Signatures Goal: 100

We, the undersigned, call upon the UK Government to freeze the annual increase in the Severn crossing tolls for 2010. Each year the tolls on both Severn crossings are increased in line with inflation for the New Year. However, the UK Government Secretary of State for Transport decide, with the agreement of the bridge operators, not to implement in "whole or in part" the annual increase in tolls. This year the tolls were not increased on the Humber bridge, the Humber Bridge Board wanted to riase the toll by 20p for cars. They were refused permission by the Secretary of State in July. Following a series of meetings with the bridge borard, Mr. Sadiq Khan, the UK Transport Minister said: "The government is committed to doing everything it can to protect communitites and businesses from economic downturn, and help the country recover. That is why I recently decided not to accept the Humber bridge board's proposed toll increase." So, logic would say "What's good for Yorkshire and the Humber is good for South Wales".
