The Mersey Tunnels have their own set of byelaws!

a PDF file of them can be found here

Whilst quickly flicking through I noticed a few interesting things:
  • Throughout the document the driver of the vehicle is refered to as a man i.e his, him or he. therefore on the byelaws in question a woman could use a loophole in the law to disobey them.
  • Pedalbikes are permitted in the queensway but not the kingsway, I will post more info lower down.
  • No person shall without permission of a Mersey Tunnels police officer enter tunnels on foot
  • in reference to lost property that has been found and handed in; If any property is not claimed within six months it will be disposed of by selling it for the best price that can be reasonably obtained. (EBAY)

as for the Bicycle law. I found this in FAQ:

Can I ride my bicycle through the tunnel?
Bicycles are not permitted through the Kingsway Tunnel. Through the Queensway Tunnel, they are not allowed between the hours of 6.00am to 8.00pm, Monday to Friday, 7.00am to 8.00pm on Saturday and 8.00am to 9.00pm on Sunday. Please note, the time limits during a Sunday are only operational between 1st April and 30th September inclusive.

I also found this in FAQ which is interesting:

Are the byelaws endorsable?
Not all byelaws are endorsable, only speeding.

what exactly does that mean?

Good stuff O wadfather wink

That's a point?
If its deemed a private road then normal laws shouldnt count?
But just like the M6 Toll they have speeding covered on that
one so maybe the same type of thing then.

Wouldn't mind going through on a push bike lol

Interesting read them by-laws, looks like if you wanted to
ride a bike through there your best getting permission first.
As i think you would have to be escorted, and keep + 10mph.

Yeh i can see that on the up hill at the other side lol

You could waddi, ride a bike that is lol.
