Mersey Gateway Bridge Opening

At just after midnight on Saturday 14th October the Mersey Gateway Bridge opened to traffic for the first time. Tolls are enforced by dedicated cameras on the toll gantry scanning vehicle number plates and special Merseyflow stickers. So far over 82,000 vehicles have been registered for discounts on tolls, and people can still register after the new bridge is open, or pay for one-off crossings in advance or by 11.59pm the day after they travel.

Jubilee Bridge Closing

With the opening of the new link between Runcorn and Widnes the existing road bridge will be closed for many months. This has led to bus routes which cross the river having to divert. Whist endeavouring to continue to provide the same level of service, Halton Transport has taken advantage of the enforced diversion to forge new links and serve new neighbourhoods.The opening date is unknown and will be officially announced only a few days before the event. Timetables are being published ahead of the opening for your information.
