Welcome to Dartford Crossing

The Dartford Crossing consists of two tunnels (carrying northbound traffic) and the Queen Elizabeth II bridge (carrying southbound traffic). The bridge was opened in 1991, a few years after the official opening of London’s M25 orbital motorway. Before then, all traffic went through the two tunnels - the first of which opened in 1963, at a cost of around £13 million. To fund the expense, motorists passing through the tunnel had to pay a toll - originally two shillings and sixpence.

  • Is there any way to avoid payment?

    The only way to legally avoid payment is to travel over the crossing between the hours of 10pm and 6am, when the Dart Charge doesn’t apply.

  • Are there any exemptions?

    Yes - if you don’t have to pay road tax because you’re disabled, you don’t have to pay the Dart Charge either. If you have a blue badge but still pay road tax, you have to pay for the Dartford crossing too.

  • How do you sort payment for the Dartford Crossing charge?

    The only way to legally avoid payment is to travel over the crossing between the hours of 10pm and 6am, when the Dart Charge doesn’t apply.

  • What happens if you don’t pay it?

    If you use the Dartford Crossing and don’t pay the Dart Charge, you’ll be liable for a £70 penalty charge sent to the address your vehicle is registered to.
