There was good news motorists who use the East Link bridge in Dublin as Dublin City Council have confirmed that toll charges will be reduced from next week onwards after the Irish Government were forced to reduce the charges due to an EU a ruling which sated that VAT should not be charged on State-owned roads.
The latest ruling which will come into effect on August 18th will now see the average motorist save 35c saving on individual car journeys, whilst trucks will save in the region of 95c per trip.
Dublin City Council say cars will now be charged €1.40, instead of the original €1.75 to travel across the bridge.
Meanwhile vans and buses will be charged €2.10, and a two-axle trucks will be charged €2.85.
However it wasn’t all good news as Transport Infrastructure Ireland confirmed that toll charges on the M50 the Port Tunnel and the M1 motorway will not be reduced.
