Chair's comment

Ahead of the event, Committee Chair David TC Davies commented:

"As the Severn River Crossings near a return to public ownership we felt it was important to understand how those who used them on a daily basis felt about the service they provided. We will also be looking at the potential for improvements, such as installing an electronic pre-pay system, and how they could improve people’s journeys."
