Consultations launched for Thurrock river crossing
Both consultations will lay the legal foundations for changes to how road user charges will be collected and enforced under a free-flow operation at Dartford.
Free-flow technology will allow motorists to use the Dartford Crossing without having to stop at barriers to hand over payment. It will allow the remote collection of payment through a variety of methods including telephone, text message, online, and at retail outlets - giving motorists greater flexibility in how and when they pay the charge.
Free-flow charging is part of a package of planned improvements being carried out by the government to improve motorists' experiences in using the Dartford Crossing. Discounts will remain in place for those that set up an account and pay in advance and for those that qualify for the Local Residents' Discount Scheme.
