Toll bridge charges

We take the health and safety of all those using and operating the toll bridge very seriously and have listened to the points raised over the last 48 hours.

We have been liaising closely with our contractors onsite and have put new measures in place. These include the introduction of a one-way collection system, which will come into effect on Wednesday June 3rd.

On entry to the bridge from a southbound direction, drivers will have the option to purchase a single journey for 12p. Cash must be deposited in the collection tool. Exact change will be required.   

Day tickets won’t be provided, helping minimise unnecessary hand-to-hand contact between users and operators. As a result, we will not be asking bridge users for payment on entry to the bridge from a northbound direction. There will be no requirement to pay the 25p charge for day tickets until further notice.

This will also enable us to operate the booth with just one member of staff.

We will continue to provide PPE for all staff including face masks and gloves, which they are encouraged to change regularly, using the hand sanitiser provided while doing so.

We would like to thank all bridge users for their patience as we introduce this new payment system.
