Major reductions to be seen on Dublin toll following European Court ruling
12:20 Saturday 12th of August 2017

Users of a busy toll route in Dublin are set to receive a reduction in the amount they are paying at the toll bridge following a ruling from the European Court of Justice.

The reductions apply to the Tom Clarke Bridge(East Link) which is located in the docklands.

The charges for a car will be dropped by 35c, vans and buses by 50c and 4-axle vehicles by 95c. The reductions are being applied due to the court's ruling that VAT charges should no longer apply to the bridge, or other State-operated tolls such as the M50 and the Port Tunnel.

There will be no price cuts on either of those tolls however, as VAT rates were already being absorbed by the operator, TII(Transport Infrastructure Ireland). That means there will be no change to the usual €2.10 fee charged at the M50 toll.

At the Tom Clarke Bridge, however, rates are to be reduced as of Friday 18th August 2017 to reflect the ruling.

The price changes are as follows:

Vehicle Class                         Old Toll Rate                                                 New Toll Rate

Car                                          €1.75                                                               €1.40

Van/Bus                                  €2.60                                                               €2.10

2 Axle                                      €3.50                                                               €2.85

3 Axle                                      €4.30                                                               €3.50

4 Axle                                      €5.20                                                               €4.25
