Govt mulls toll roads

Govt mulls toll roads
The Department for Transport is considering plans to boost capacity on Britain’s road networks by increasing the number of toll roads.

The scheme is being discussed within the Coalition, and could be announced as government policy next month as part of the Government’s mid-term review.

Labour has hit out at the impact government policies have had on motorists, and said the Coalition was "dreaming up new ways to make them pay even more".

“Less than a year ago, David Cameron clearly ruled out tolls for existing roads. Breaking that promise let-down millions of motorists - but the government definition of what is an existing road seems to be shifting," Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick said.

“Today’s revelations uncover how the government is considering bringing in privately-run toll roads by stealth. David Cameron must now come clean and be honest with hard-pressed motorists.”

The Daily Telegraph reports that road tax may also be changed to reflect which roads drivers are using.
