Poll: Should foot passengers pay to use the floating bridge?

SHOULD the Isle of Wight Council introduce charges for foot passengers on the floating bridge — we have launched a poll today (Tuesday) to find out what Islanders think.

The Isle of Wight Council executive will discuss launching a consultation about charges on Monday.

A report to the committee states: "It is proposed the consultation will be Island wide. This will seek theviews of Island residents on the suggested introduction of a 50p eachway fare.

"Passengers under the age of 18 will travel free."
