    Travel the M50 each day for work and noticed they have been erecting a new tolling system just before the old one south bound also notice vans that look like network engineering companies working in the small shed they built - haven't seen anything on Boards or on line does anyone know whats behind this ?

    Is the old one becoming defunct ?

    Also noticed over the last few months there has been steel panels placed on the gantry's where the average speed signs should be so assuming this due to get ready for average speed limits.

    Anyone know whats behind this ?

    EDIT: just found this!

    So a company is going to make €373 million to toll us on a road bought and paid for countless times over.

    Sounds like a pretty good way to make money in fairness.
