Merseytravel to vote on Mersey Tunnel toll hike

Last updated:

    Merseyside's Transport Authority budget meeting agreed to a 10p hike, taking the fee to £1.70 for Class 1 vehicles.
  • But Merseytravel could have increased the toll to £1.80 under the Tunnels Act 2004.
  • Campaigners urged councillors to vote against the proposed increase.
  • Birkenhead MP Frank Field called on the authority to outline proposals to eliminate the tunnel debt and embark on a programme of toll reductions.
