Registration for Mersey Gateway tolls opens on Monday 17th July 2017.

 

From 8am Monday 17th July 2017 you will be able to register at www.merseyflow.co.uk for the merseyflow tolling system that will operate on the new Mersey Gateway and Silver Jubilee bridges.

 

Our partners at merseyflow and Halton Council are urging people to register online as quickly as possible to ensure they don’t get caught in a last minute rush when the new bridge opens in the autumn.

 

Registering with merseyflow is the only way to get discounts or, if you qualify, free travel across the new bridge and the Silver Jubilee Bridge.

 

From the morning of 17th July anyone can visit www.merseyflow.co.uk and sign up for the merseyflow account that is right for them.

 

Signing-up online is the easiest way to register, but the locally based walk-in centre and the call-centre will also open at that point so anyone who wants to register in person or by phone will be able to do so.

 

Anyone who is eligible for the Halton residents’ discount scheme must register and pay their £10 annual fee in order to claim their free trips.

 

People will also be able to register for a pre-pay account, monthly pass or Blue Badge holder pass from next month, all of which give discounts on the full unregistered toll fee.

 

The free-flow tolling system will mean journeys across the Mersey in Halton will be quicker, easier and more reliable, because drivers won’t need to stop or use a toll booth bucket.

 

It will still be possible to cross the bridge without registering but, if you do, you will have to pay the full unregistered toll fee which is £2 per car per crossing, with additional charges for larger vehicles.
