A282 Dartford Crossing Remote Payment Scheme

Scheme outline

This project will remove the permanent toll boths from both sides of the Dartford Crossing, the busiest river crossing in the UK and a major source of congestion. In its place will be an electronic congestion charge scheme allowing payment in advance or by midnight the day following the crossing.

The toll plazas will be replaced with four continuous traffic lanes in each direction and a holding area for special loads.

This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
