An item on BBC Breakfast highlighted the high cost of tolls on the Humber Bridge, which have gone up from £2.70 to £3. The Humber bridge is over a mile long, (6,300 feet), and the distance to ‘go around’ some 50 miles plus. Sandbanks Chain Ferry on the other hand is £3.50 for 1,060 feet with a go around of circa 35 miles and the ferry itself is some 200 feet so only has to travel 800 feet. Seems like a rip off to me or is the toll fee based on Sandbanks earnings not Purbeck's ?
