Toll set to rise on newly opened bridge

THE cost of crossing Whitchurch toll bridge is set to increase from 40p to 60p.

The Whitchurch Bridge Company confirmed today that it will apply to the Government for permission to raise the toll.

The company has just finished refurbishing the bridge to cope with modern volumes of traffic.

The project began in October last year and was supposed to finish in April but was delayed by five months.

It cost almost £2 million more than the original £4 million estimate.
