THE Mersey Tunnel Users’ Association is launching a new campaign to demand toll discounts for Merseyside motorists in line with those proposed by the goverment on the Dartford crossings in Kent.

Transport Secretary Rosie Winterton recently announced a scheme to give local residents on either side of the Dartford crossings significant savings on the cost of tolls.

MTUA is demanding parity with the residents Dartford and Thurrock for people living in Liverpool and Wirral.

Tolls Discount for Locals Campaign will be officially launched at a public general meeting of the association to be held at 7.30pm on Monday, March 17. Anyone interested in the Mersey tunnels and tolls in general is invited.

The meeting will be at Greasby Community Centre, next to the health centre in Greasby Road, Greasby.


MTUA secretary John McGoldrick said: “On the Dartford crossings the government has said it will almost waive the tolls for local drivers, so why should people in Liverpool and Wirral not get the same treatment? Motorists here are fed up with being treated as cash cows.”

Aint gonna happen... the people living either side are the main user's, commuting to Liverpool and Brikenhead.

Relatively little national traffic uses the tunnel's compared to the local commuters, despite the direct link-up to the M53.

They have just increased their pricing to meet cost's, any discount would either mean the overall cost of the tunnels would then have to rise, defeating the object of the discount, or the tunnel's will cease to exist.

Can you honestly see them cutting say 80% of their income partially or completely, just because a few local residents have complained about the price.

People, businesses and media have been complaining and petitioning for over a decade now, just about the high cost of the tunnel's, and the only place that has ended up, is with further price increases.

2 points:

1. Does this mean we except that a toll must be paid!

2. Its worth a try.

Good luck

PS. I pay about £700 a year to cross the river.
