From the 30th November the Dartford crossing will no longer have toll booths. In an effort to reduce congestion the bridge and tunnel will now be paid for in advance by motorists.
Car Buyer website offers a complete guide to the new charges and how to pay:
“The fees for the Dartford tunnel and bridge increased on 30th November 2014. The cost varies depending on the type of vehicle using the crossing:
Cars – £2.50
Two-axle goods vehicles – £3.00
Multi-axle goods vehicles – £6.00
Motorcycles – Free
The crossings will continue to be free to use between 10pm and 6am.
How to pay the Dartford Crossing
Dartford Crossing payment is run in a similar fashion to the London Congestion Charge. That means motorists will need to pay using one of the following methods:
Over the phone by calling 0300 300 0120
At a retail outlet with a Payzone terminal. Visit payzone.co.uk to find your nearest.
By post in advance at: Dart Charge Customer Services, PO Box 842, Leeds LS1 9QF”
This is great news for regular users of the crossing, and hopefully means fewer queues.
