THE ONE TOLL GATE IN THE LONDON AREA WHERE TOLL IS STILL EXACTED

THE ONE TOLL GATE IN THE LONDON AREA WHERE TOLL IS STILL EXACTED

Toll is still demanded from drivers of vehicles at more than eighty toll gates in various parts of the country, though the Ministry of Transport's endeavour to abolish this impost goes steadily on. The toll gate in College Road, which runs north and south to the west of Dulwich Park, is a surprising survival of the levy in view of its nearness to London. It is the only place in the Metropolitan area where a toll is exacted. Its principal harvest is, of course, from motor cars.
