CARS using the floating bridge can benefit from a 20p saving this winter.

The Isle of Wight Council announced the discount to encourage use of the bridge during the winter — and while St Mary's Roundabout is undergoing improvement works.

The offer, which will run until March 31 next year, will see the cost of a crossing reduced from £2 to £1.80 for saver card holders and from £2.60 to £2.40 for non-saver card holders.

The new discount is in addition to the offer of free saver cards during the St Mary’s works.

You can collect a saver card by visiting Hall’s Premier Stores in East Cowes and Rashley’s Stores in Cowes, or ask the crew on the floating bridge.
