£5 to get out of a traffic jam

If plans so ahead by next month, there will be segregated motorway lanes that will allow drivers to drive past stationary traffic.

This privilege will cost £5 and will allow drivers to drive in this lane, depending on the length of the journey.

Ministers are due to award contracts for technology trials to begin next year on the new lanes, and have arranged 100-200 volunteer motorists to act as guinea pigs in trials that will go ahead soon.

The Department for Transport has confirmed that tolling is being considered for one lane on any stretch of motorway that is due to be widened.

We will bring you further information soon, so please revisit for updates.
