The government promised a year ago that they would halve the tunnel tolls. They have now reduced the Severn tolls but broken their promise to Merseyside.

I seem to remember a hint that he would pass the buck to the Liverpool City Region ie if we want cuts then we would have to pay for them locally - not much of a cut!

There was a meeting about the tunnel fees in Feb. Don't know what came from that.

The Severn Bridge costs (as from January this year) 6.60 for the average car to cross. oshocked

They only charge in one direction iirc so an average of 3.30 a trip which is about to be halved to 1.65? Mersey tunnel is currently 1.70

The Severn bridge is a private enterprise although eventually it will be handed over to public ownership, if the date isn't continually pushed into the future as has been the case so far.
