Aontu leader and Meath West TD ], Peadar Toibín says the government should consider making journeys free.

“The citizens of this country have paid for that bridge over and over again.

“Hundreds of millions have been paid on an annual basis for that.”

“It was bought for half a billion nearly two decades ago at this stage.”

“The Government are looking to keep the toll going for at least another ten years.”

“I think at this stage, in a cost of living crisis, commuters travelling long distances into the city centre need to be given a break.”
