Further Information: This is the original Severn suspension Bridge taking the M4 London to South Wales motorway from Aust (Gloucestershire) to Beachley (Monmouthshire), on a Northwards loop to cross the mighty Severn & Wye rivers at their narrowest convenient point. It was opened in 1966 and saves a longer journey up the M5, and back down the other side of the Severn on the M50 motorway.  Previously a Ferry crossed between the same towns. When the new CABLE STAYED Severn Bridge was built it became the M4 motorway and the older bridge was a subsidiary crossing with its motorway being renamed the M48. Both motorways charge tolls from England to Wales only. Today's tolls (2017) are 6.70 for a car, and 13.40 for a small van. 1.6 miles long with a central span of 305 metres - very small by todays standards.
