– A new payment system has been introduced at the crossing between Kent and Essex. The payment system at the Dartford Crossing came into force at 06:00 GMT, replacing the toll booths on the Kent side of the crossing. The current 27-lane system will be replaced by four expressways in each direction and lanes to help turn away vehicles unsuitable for the tunnels. Charges have increased overnight for cars from £2 to £2.
