    Nice of them to put the arrows up tho to let you know.

    If I was paying to use a bridge... I'd take my time anyway, just to get my money's worth out of it :lol: thank for the heads up

    Yes, at £1.50 a pop for something that was only a toll until it was paid for, is a bit rich! But hey, why should they be the first to give up fleecing the motorist?

    Not active yet, they are both ways too, with the dartford side camera obscured by the bridge so be VERY careful.

    luckily i only pay 20p a time because i have an LR Tag, so dont plan on getting any speeding tickets too lol.

    Probably illegal to take those pics now with new laws. Not allowed to take photos of bridges. Better hide.

    thanks for the heads up guv :thumbsup:
    did you get tickets for london zoo?

    Forgot all about it in the end. I'd imagine they've already gone!

    I thought there had to be marking on the road too in order to measure the distance and calculate your speed?

    Are they average speed cameras, in which case no road markings required are there?

    not with average speed cameras, they are a set distance apart and clock your numberplate at the first camera and calculates your speed to the next camera when it see you again.

    UPDATE:
    Yes these are average speed cams

    Welcome Sculpturatus, yeah its called Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, QE2, Dartford Tolls, Dartford Tunnel.

    If anyone is interesting, saw in the local paper they are planning on building a new bridge here to 'ease congestion', there wouldnt be any congestion if the tolls were removed!!!!

    Thanks. I keep posting in the deals request section but it seems to hide my post from everyone for some reason.

    How would a new bridge ease congestion anyway? all that will do is add x amount of new tolls on the road and then when the traffic was merged back into the flow after the bridge the congestion would be at that point surely?
