From late November 2014 there will be changes to the way you pay the Dartford Crossing charge. You will no longer pay at the barriers; instead you’ll be able to pay in advance, or before midnight the day after crossing. Drivers who don’t pay will face a penalty charge.
The new scheme is known as Dart Charge and will help to reduce congestion at the crossing. It will still be free to use the crossing between 10pm and 6am. For more information visit the Dart Charge Web Page.
