Information about the Bridge Reconstruction (updated 24th September 2014)
Although the Bridge is now open for road traffic, there is still work to be done before the reconstruction project is complete. This includes dismantling the temporary footbridge, removing the contractors compound and reinstating the river meadow. The main contractor is Balfour Beatty. More information about the reconstruction is here.
Tolls (updated 1st October 2014)
We have decided that, in order to continue to meet our legal obligations to maintain a crossing over the Thames, we need to increase the Class 1 Toll from 40p to 60p. We will now prepare a Toll Application for submission to the Secretary of State for Transport in accordance with the Transport Charges etc (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1954, probably by the end of October 2014. We will also publish a copy on this website.
The Tolls will not change until our Toll Application
is approved by the Secretary of State for Transport. There will be
a period of public consultation during which anyone can make
representations to the Secretary of State.
