Drivers who cross the River Tamar from Cornwall into Devon may have to pay 50p more from next year.

The Tamar Bridge and Torpoint Ferry Joint Committee has issued 25,000 leaflets to bridge and ferry users about the proposed toll increase.

The 50% rise, scheduled for December 2009, is the first cash toll rise since 1994 and will bring the cost to 1.50.

The committee said many routine costs had increased year on year, often at a faster rate than inflation.

Discounted prepaid tolls will also rise from 50p to 75p.
