Roll-out of new 24/7 £1 Mersey Tunnel toll begins
Today is the first day Liverpool City Region residents will benefit from the new 24/7 £1 Fast Tag toll for the Mersey Tunnels. The reduced rate is now available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Figures released today by Merseytravel and the Combined Authority reveal that more than 57,000 people a day in the city region will benefit from the new lower toll – which could save regular tunnel users living in Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral more than £400* a year.
The cash toll for cars will be frozen at £1.80, still 20p less per journey than the rise authorised by the Tunnels Act. The tolls for all other vehicles – including large vans, coaches and HGVs – will also be held at 2018 rates.
