Budget 2016: Welsh Tory delight at Severn toll cut

Toll charges on the Severn crossings will be halved in 2018, Chancellor George Osborne has announced in his Budget.

The current £6.60 toll for cars - already due to be cut to £5.40 - is now expected to fall to around £3.30, subject to inflation.

Mr Osborne said it followed other measures to boost the Welsh economy.
