Tamar Price Hikes
4:51pm 21st October 2013
Travelling from Cornwall to Plymouth could be about to get more expensive.
Tamar Tag users could be charged an extra 80p a month to cross the bridge or the Torpoint Ferry.
It is part of plans to plug a million pound a year budget gap.
A consultation is underway.
Martin Lyne from Roseland haulage company Maen Karn Aggregates said: "We use the bridge daily, probably between 14 and 16 times every day running clay from Cornwall into Plymouth. We've not got an alternative route that we could use and a lot of this we would have to absorb; we would have a job to recoup that cost."
