Motion from Councillor Bill Tormey was passed unanimously by Dublin City Council tonight.

“That the City Council seeks a review of the charges at the M50 toll bridge, and in particular, that the 8 pm on the following day deadline for toll payment be increased to one week.”

Bill Tormey also criticised the high cost of the crossing in the context of the rapidly increasing costs of motoring – insurance, parking and other charges which are exorbitant in relation to falling take home pay of the majority and general price deflation in the economy.
