I too signed up for regular updates via email with them, but I didn't get that one. I have received several emails since signing up for the updates, so don't know what happened to that one. All of those still said October, but it looks like it has been well delayed.

Stuart, I hope you are not insinuating that I am less important than you? Or does that only apply in the case of when there are Camping Cheques for sale

It's very quaint that a post on the Dartford crossing is in the 'caravanning and camping abroad' section.

For some of us the only time we use the crossing is when we are about to travel through the hinterland on our way to Cambridgeshire or Suffolk. Or when we're heading back south to civilisation.

Obviously I do realise that for those that live north of the Thames it is a form of acclimatisation before you get to the channel.

As a 'grammatical superior' you have lapsed.

Anyway the joke, if you live in Sussex is - Newhaven for the continent, Bexhill for the incontinent.

And if you live in Essex it is - Harwich for the continent, Frinton for the incontinent and Leigh on Sea for the malcontent.

The new payment arrangements at the Dartford Crossing will come into effect on 30 November 2014:

the current payment arrangements will continue until Dart Charge goes live
weíll start the main roadworks to remove the booths and introduce a new road layout in late November; due for completion spring 2015
Weíll be in touch shortly with further information about how you can transfer your existing DART-Tag account or set up a new account to get ready for Dart Charge.

I saw this story on the BBC News iPad App and thought you should see it:

M25 collapses following roadworks

Three lanes of the M25 in Surrey are closed after a section where overnight roadworks were carried out collapses during heavy rain.

My goodness, that is one motorway not to be on at the best of times, but today looks terrible. And what about those people whose tyres have been damaged as a result? Glad not to be anywhere near there at this moment in time, but I pity those who are, or have been, stuck in there, or had their tyres damaged.

Having had a dart tag which was converted on email to dart account, just used for first time over Christmas and still say its the best way no worries at all you need to join with £10.00 for an account but its all credit and number plate recognition so easy, no worries

Just an update for you re Motability vehicles...

We are due to travel 1st June to Folkestone so thought I would get ahead and set up an account.

Entered our vehicle reg and it said "This vehicle is exempt" which was nice...

So I just hope that this correct, not a glitch on the website.

As we are away a month I really hope when we return there is no fine to pay for not paying the crossing charge!

Exemptions if youíre disabled
You may not have to pay the charge if you donít pay vehicle tax because youíre disabled.

Youíll still have to pay if:

you have a Blue Badge but arenít exempt from paying vehicle tax
you travel in a vehicle that isnít exempt
You donít need to do anything to get the exemption. Your vehicle details will be checked with DVLA when crossings are made in your vehicle.

Just a massive reminder to those travelling on the crossing this year don't forget to pay if your not free or have a charge account   The good news is there is a 14 day grace period before the fine kicks in, it was supposed to be till midnight on the day but there is so many non payers as after travelling over and under on Thursday the signage is appalling about paying I can see why   
14 days may not be enough if your off to France adnIm not sure how long they will keep it going before reverting to midnight on the day but as I say just a    MASSIVE REMINDER TO PAY

I thought payment had to be made by midnight on the day after your crossing.

Interesting that there is 14 days grace at present. I wonder how long it's going to take to clear the non-payers.

Id suggest it will be a while before the 14 days ends as its such a mess down there very little signage and some 18000 foreign registered vehicles and growing are being chased for payment of which they have little chance of enforcement so not sure they will ever clear them

I have a classic scenario as passed through on trade plates in November   dont think they allowed for them
