To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate his Department has made of the income from toll charges in (a) 2015 and (b) 2014.
There is only one toll for which the Secretary of State is responsible, on the Severn Crossings. Even in this case, the level of tolls is defined by primary legislation. The toll revenue goes to Severn River Crossings Plc to cover the maintenance costs and debts incurred, principally from building the second crossing. The estimated gross toll income for the Severn Crossings is £113m for 2015 and £109m for 2014.
