Contactless payment to be available on M6 toll

Drivers using the M6 Toll road will be able to pay for their journey using their contactless credit and debit cards from February 2012.

The M6 Toll has been working with Barclaycard to install easy-to-use contactless payments at toll booths, allowing customers to pay for their journey by simply holding their card over the terminal.

Contactless technology will initially be trialled on a single lane from this autumn, with the aim of rolling it  out across all card-accepting toll booths in the first quarter of 2012.

The technology is 52% faster to transact than cash and 33% quicker than chip and PIN payments, helping to reduce queuing time at the toll plazas.
