The complex relationship between the Severn Crossings and the Welsh economy is such that the study covers a broad range of transport and economic issues.

The following research and analysis was undertaken:

  • A literature review of the impact of road tolls, including tolled bridges, elsewhere;
  • High-level traffic and transport modelling;
  • A survey of businesses in South Wales and the South West of England;
  • In depth interviews with a selection of businesses and representative groups;
  • A survey of consumers in the South West of England, and;
  • Modelling of the effects of tolling on productivity.
