Electronic toll collection offers a more convenient way for frequent users to pay their tolls, speeds up transactions through toll lanes, and reduces the handling of money for both customer and operator. This technology is particularly beneficial at the Tamar Crossings as both Bridge and Ferry have a very high percentage of frequent users. In addition the faster transaction time will increase throughput at the recently widened Bridge and facilitate the collection of tolls from the greater numbers of vehicles larger loads being carried by the new larger Torpoint Ferries.
