TOLL CONCESSIONS FOR DISABLED PERSON'S BADGE HOLDERS AT ROAD BRIDGES AND TUNNELS
Disabled people using the following toll bridges and tunnels should be entitled to concessions provided they meet certain conditions set by the owners or operators.
In some cases, to qualify for a concession an application has to be made in advance to the relevant bridge, tunnel or local authority. It is, therefore, generally advisable to check with owners or operators first.
Birmingham Toll M6 Motorway
The Mobility Exemption Pass is for the sole use on the M6 Toll and allows free passage of the nominated vehicle only. If you think you may be eligible for a Mobility Exemption Pass, you must apply to Midland Expressway Limited as no other evidence of disability (e.g. Blue Badge) can be accepted.
Organisations, recognised by the Secretary of State for Transport, which operate a vehicle used for the carriage of disabled people can also use the motorway free of charge by applying in advance for a Mobility Exemption Pass: Customer Services, Midland Express Ltd, Operations Centre, Freepost NAT 9069, Weeford, Lichfield WS14 0BR
