Up to 100 jobs at risk over Severn Bridge toll removal
Around 100 jobs are at risk when the tolls are removed from the Severn Crossing.
Tolls will no longer be charged from December 17, with the physical work to remove them starting days earlier.
Highways England have confirmed that they are planning to axe up to 100 roles.
A spokeswoman said that with just weeks to go until the tolls are removed “conversations are continuing with individual staff members”.
The roles of 188 staff were taken on by Highways England following the return of the crossings to public ownership.
A Highways England spokesperson said: “We are continuing conversations with our tolling staff who transferred into the organisation in January when Highways England took over management of the bridges
“We are working with our teams to reward their commitment, ensuring that the bridges remain operational until tolling ceases and the bridges can operate as free running motorways.
“We have strong links with our colleagues in the south west region and are supporting redeployment efforts and job matching opportunities for all colleagues who would prefer to remain rather than take redundancy.
“We will offer support to those colleagues who do leave the organisation to assist them in finding employment.”
