Charging foreign hauliers for using UK roads

16. January 2014

A new time-based user charge for all heavy goods vehicles at or above 12 tonnes using the UK road network will be introduced in April 2014. 

For a 40 tonne 5 axle artic, the most common type of foreign vehicle coming to the UK, operators will pay £10 per day or £1,000 per year. If you don’t pay, or underpay, you will face a £300 fine. See the full press release from the UK Department for Transport here.
