Dartford crossing remains free for bikes despite changes

No more queuing at Dartford?

As of this week there are no longer toll booths at the foot of the Dartford Crossing as the Government introduce an electronic online payment system in an effort to reduce congestion.

The crossing in Kent allows motorists to continue on the M25 over the River Thames via a bridge (Southbound) and tunnel (Northbound). However, with traffic having to stop to pay the toll the crossing became a notorious congestion hotspot.

Now the toll barriers have been scrapped to allow traffic to flow freely, with the toll now to be paid online or via mobile phone.

Despite toll charges increasing for other vehicles in line with this change, motorcycles, motor tricycles, mopeds and quad bikes can still cross for free at any time of day without penalty.
