UK M25 Motorway shows up as a Toll Road

Post by world_rj41i86g
Hello,
During a recent trip from my home to London Gatwick airport, the three suggested Waze routes showed as including "Tolls".
This is incorrect as none of the three routes included a Toll charge.
See screenshot.

It may be that part of the M25, to the east of London, does include a Toll charge (crossing the River Thames), but these three routes don't go anywhere near that bridge.
Regards
TN

If you want to go the Gatwick airport drop-off/pick-up area, you will get charged £5 for the privilege. I believe this is a charge for driving along the road rather than stopping on it. Therefore a "toll" flag seems appropriate.
If you go instead to the long stay parking area, you don't get charged for pick-up/drop-off, and even the shuttle bus to/from the airport is free.
I agree the app could be clearer about which section of road is the "toll", but we map editors don't get to design the app interface :(

I've amended the OP to show the attachment. The issue is nowhere near Dartford.

Someone has enabled the Gatwick terminal access roads as Toll Roads.

Unfortunately, your screenshot appears not to have been attached, although the post recognises there are attachments.

The Dartford Crossing is not, technically, part of the M25 as it is subject to a toll during the day. No other part of the M25 or M23 is subject to a toll. Without the screenshot, can't really comment further.
