I had no problem, and registered a few vehicles, on that not the qe2 side was flowing very well round the boothes, but the nb side was as bad as usual tailing all the way back to the A2... Glad I'm not on that side, will be tomorrow on return..

I expected Sally Traffic to be reporting accidents this morning. Did not go today but thanks for the info.

I went yesterday and no problems getting over the bridge but coming back through the tunnel took me nearly an hour. Most of the booths were there coming back but the automatic barriers were still going up and down, slowing everyone down. I just did a one off online payment of £6 (£3 each way).

The barriers apparently are staying for a while yet to "control" traffic flow. That's what I read yesterday anyway.

Have been through the barriers today on return from yesterday, the traffic hasn't changed, but the boothes are now unmanned and automatic, the "C" charge cameras are just before the tunnels. Not sure where the cameras are on the QE2 side..

And no more going through the self-service lane and throwing a handful of washers into the collection bin either

It was Tuesday the 2nd, not yesterday, yesterday would have been a nightmare after that unsurprising accident.. Glad I wasnt in it..

So, they have removed the toll booths and made everyone redundant and now charge me £2.63 with my prepay account instead of £2.50 and they call that a discount!

Vans have been moved into commercial group now so that why you are charged £2.63 as opposed to the £3. 00 it would now cost you, yep I know its been a 25% increase overall, as the AA say it need more capacity over the bridge not easier ways to pay.
