• Closure of Kingsway and Queensway Tunnels - Wednesday 30 November 2011
As a Fast Tag Account holder, and therefore a regular user of the Mersey Tunnels, it is with regret that we write to inform you of a planned full closure of the two Mersey Tunnels, Wallasey and Birkenhead, on Wednesday 30th November 2011.
At the time of writing, Merseytravel has received formal notification via Trade Unions of planned industrial action across the public sector on Wednesday 30th November 2011. It is expected that this industrial action will involve members of staff involved in the operation of the Mersey Tunnels and will therefore impact on the safe operation of the two Tunnels. It is for safety reasons that the two Tunnels will be closed.
The attached link to our website details the actual times associated with this closure. Please be aware that the closure will commence at 23.45 hours on 29th November 2011, and we will be open as normal from 00.15 hours on 1st December 2011. Our latest press release is also included on our website under "Latest News
" and we will be utilising the local press to make our users aware of this closure as much as possible. Of course, should this position change as the date approaches we will obviously communicate that as widely as possible too.
