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.
The scheme went live at 6:00am on 30 November. Work is now progressing on removing the toll boths, expected to be completed by Spring 2015.
The northbound carriageway layout has been completed as of June 13th, including the installation of new vehicle height detection equipment. Work is under way on the southbound carriageway and is expected to be completed by September.
