The prices charged for LCVs to use the M6 toll road are set to rise from 30 July.
The increases are to be introduced alongside rises for cars and HGVs.
Although LCV prices are rising by between 10p and 30p, the road’s operator Midland Expressway Limited (MEL) says prices will be frozen for night time journeys for all light and heavy goods vehicles to support operators during on-going roadworks on the M6.
The new LCV prices, including VAT and those via the road’s electronic tag payment system, are as follows:
Mainline plazas: Monday to Friday 6am to 11pm £11.30 (non-tag), £10.73 (tag); Saturday and Sunday 6am to 11pm £9.70 (non-tag), £9.21 (tag); Night rate £8.60 (non-tag), £8.17 (tag).
Ramp plazas: Monday to Friday 6am to 11pm £10.30 (non-tag), £9.78 (tag); Saturday and Sunday 6am to 11pm £8.70 (non-tag), £8.26 (tag); Night rate £7.60 (non-tag), £7.22 (tag).
MEL says the price rises for goods vehicles are the first since 2012, and are substantially below the rate of inflation, and that LCV price rises have been kept lower to support SMEs.
MEL chief executive Andy Cliffe said: “We are committed to encouraging more vans and HGVs off the M6 and onto the M6 toll and our price rises for commercial vehicles have been carefully set to ensure that we continue the significant growth in HGV traffic on the M6 toll that we saw in 2017.”
