No toll on SRC, beg truckies

TOWOOMBA North MP Trevor Watts isn't the only one fed up with the fact that the Queensland Government won't release the cost of the tolls on the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing - so are truckies.

Some are even going so far to say that they won't be using the toll road, which is the first regional road to have a toll on it.

One driver said he'd already been told that he "will not go that way, we will have to take the Cunningham's Gap”.

Big Rigs follower Bruce Skelton was of the simple opinion of just not using it at all because of the toll - shorter route be damned.

"There must be a toll-free route,” he said.

"I also think the Gateway Bridge should be toll-free for B-double as there is no toll-free route available.”
