New Year, New Tolls

Well, it’s approaching the time of year when the powers-that-be increase the toll to get into Wales over the Severn Bridge. For 2006 the toll has been £4.90 – so naturally I expected the toll to increase to a nice round £5 for 2007.

But that would be far too obvious… there I was hoping for a year when the toll was a nice round number…

No, they’re putting it up to £5.10.

Why? Why £5.10, not £5.

Well, according the website, the 20p increase is “in line with Retail Price Inflation”…
