• 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.

I hope nobody is seriously ill or injured and needs transferring under Police escort from this side to one of the Liverpool hospitals, i.e. for Neuro, during these hours then!

Having said that, I hope that there isn't more than one serious RTC this side either as there's only one car covering the Wirral now since it was all moved over to Smithdown snob

Being unskilled workers, the buggers should be grateful to have jobs at all.

Stuff the strike. I hope that volunteers do the work and keep things running.

Aye let's get back to the good old days of mill owners and mine owners and paying pittances to their workers - like it or lump attitudes

So no rights for workers? You wouldn't say that if your terms and conditions have changed. I can't go through the tunnel either that day and will gladly take the wrong way round to support the workers.

Obviously a tory voter comment.

i dont suppose for one minute Merseytravel would just " open" the tunnels would they....thought not....and people should always have a right to strike , just cos you dont agree with it.

Well I'm a local government worker and I'll be on strike on the 30th. As will almost all my colleagues. None of us want to lose a days pay but you have to take a stand sometime. Hopefully this will be the start of a massive fight-back against the Tories.

Up the workers!
