SKYE BRIDGE TOLLS TO END – SOON?
Possibly in response to the threats of judicial review on the matter (see No 354), or possibly not, on 5 June 2004 Enterprise Minister Jim Wallace made the following statement in the Scottish Parliament: This executive is committed to ending the discredited tolling regime on the Skye Bridge. Professional advisers have been appointed and discussions with Skye Bridge Limited have already begun. Having conferred with the minister of transport on this issue… I believe we can achieve our goal by the end of this year.
