Luke is encouraging drivers who use the Torpoint Ferry and the Tamar Bridge to submit their views to a consultation about raising the toll from £2 to £2.60.
“When family budgets are facing a huge squeeze, this huge hike is not welcome. I want to see the government step in and help fund the bridge. On other crossings around the country, they have subsidised travel – but they have decided not to do that for the links between Devon and Cornwall.
We deserve our fair share of funding and that means proper funding for the Tamar crossings. In the meantime, please do submit your views to the consultation.”
Members of the public can complete the consultation survey here: https://www.research.net/r/Tamarcrossings-web-2022
Anyone who does not have access to the internet can write to Tamar Crossings at the above address to request a copy of the survey or they can telephone 01752 361577 or collect a copy from the offices at the Bridge or Ferry.
Organisations, such as haulage companies, can provide written feedback by email: email@example.com or by writing to Tamar Crossings at Tamar Bridge Office, Pemros Road, St Budeaux, Plymouth PL5 1LP.
The consultation is open until 14th February.
