H S P Support Group Wales               




This page was inspired by a member who told me that when they travelled into Wales from Devon they go via Gloucester to avoid the Bridge toll.

Remember because you know, it is not the case that we all know, so if you can add any item here then please email me the details so we can all share.


When you travel across the Severn Bridge and you have a blue badge as driver OR passenger then you don't have to pay any toll fee.

Some are still unaware that you can get a RADAR key from your local council to open any disability toilet in the country. All you have to do is produce your blue badge and pay a small fee about 2.50
