Toll charges for West-Link to increase

Motorists using the West-Link bridge on the M50 in Dublin are to be hit with higher toll charges from next January.

Tariffs are set to rise by 10% to €2, that's up from the current charge of €1.90.

Drivers using the traffic-clogged motorway will then have to get electronic tags to prepare for barrier-free tolling in August.

Those with tags will continue to pay €2 from August on.

Those who don't opt for this but who set up a number-plate account with the toll operator will have to pay €2.50.

But the real sting will be for motorists who fail to register for payment in either of these ways.

They'll have to be tracked down by bridge operators and will be charged €3 to compensate for the extra work.
