Britain's Toll Roads

Details

This book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-practice scan of the toll road sector today, cataloguing all of the toll roads, bridges and tunnels currently in operation. A number of the larger facilities such as the Thames crossings at Dartford or the Mersey or Tyne tunnels are well-known, yet there are many more, smaller turnpikes dotted around the country. Most of these are privately-owned toll bridges in rural locations that date from the 1800s yet still remain in operation today. Robert Bain consolidates all of this information in this book, providing a unique and fascinating glimpse into road tolling in modern Britain. As an avid proponent of road pricing and a keen photographer, Dr Bain visited all of the UK's toll roads, bridges and tunnels in 2018, capturing images and collecting memorabilia. Additional investigations followed through contact with county councils, enthusiast groups, local history societies and archive offices. This book represents the culmination of his research.
