The Freight Transport Association has slammed the Government for increasing charges at the Dartford River Crossing

The first rise comes in October this year, when the toll for a heavy goods vehicle will jump by £1.30, to £5.00. Drivers using the 'Dart-Tag' will see their fee jump from £3.20 to £4.33. Car users will see a 50p increase.
