Dear Mersey Gateway Crossings Board Ltd,
I note that your published website statistics does not reveal the number of 'free' crossings made by Halton residents.
I am assuming that these crossings must be paid for. So, a number of questions follow...
If they are truely free, please say so.
If they are not:
Who pays for these crossings (out of whose budget does this come?)
How many have there been, monthly, from the Crossings opening ?
What is the financial cost (by month and in total) of these crossings?
Can you estimate when the crossing will be paid for?
You can obviously use 'What do they know' to reply.
To pay your toll or for any other tolling queries please visit
www.merseyflow.co.uk or call 01928 878 878. (Their call centre is open
8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm Saturday, Sunday and bank
holidays). Merseylink will not be responding to this email query if it is
related to the tolling process.
