Pembrokeshire's Cleddau Bridge toll review decision due

Cleddau Bridge

A decision on whether to keep road tolls on a Pembrokeshire bridge is set to be made next month.

The Cleddau Bridge - which costs 75p per car to cross between Pembroke Dock and Neyland - has a surplus of more than £11m.

On Wednesday, many councillors backed reducing the tolls but others claimed abolishing them would mean £2m less to spend on roads and transport each year.

Pembrokeshire council will make a formal decision at a meeting on 12 May.

There are four options to consider; to keep tolls as they are, abolish them, raise them or reduce them.

The way the council manages the tolls has previously been brought under review after a complaint to the Wales Audit Office.
