Head to Cheshire and you’ll find two majestic bridges sitting side by side. The original Silver Jubilee Bridge, and the newer Mersey Gateway. Both go over two waterways – the Mersey River and the Manchester Ship canal. An incredible 1.4 miles in total. Take note, cyclists and pedestrians are only allowed to use the Silver Jubilee crossing.
If you don’t pay the toll charge by midnight the day after you use either bridge – or if you forget to pay completely – the fixed Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) is £40.
Unpaid penalty fines are registered as civil debt and if left unpaid will lead to enforcement action from the council.
If you breakdown on the bridge, your vehicle must be recovered by Merseyflow. No roadside repairs, refuelling, or tyre changing is allowed unless by special permission. Your vehicle gets taken to a specific location, where it will be impounded until the recovery fees are paid. These are a minimum of £150 for small vehicles.
There are a few discounts and exemptions for Merseyflow charges:
Download the app, find Merseyflow charges under ‘Roads and Tolls’ and pay in seconds. It’s that easy. Sort it before you even get in the car. The same payment can cover a single or return journey over each bridge, nice and simple.
