Liverpool drivers warned of potential tunnel toll increase

Motorists in Liverpool could become subject to increased tolls when passing through the Mersey Tunnels, according to a pressure group.

The Mersey Tunnel Users Association (MTUA) told the Wirral Globe that Merseytravel is set to potentially increase levies on cars to £1.60, as had originally been planned last year.

This move has been described by the body as unnecessary, as it suggested that Merseytravel already makes a profit from tunnel tolls and has no need to recoup costs.

MTUA secretary John McGoldrick has therefore called on local motorists to lobby councillors responsible for the public transport body in order to protest against the increase.

He said: “Whatever has happened elsewhere, if people … don’t make representations then a toll rise is quite possible.”

Last week, the Liverpool Echo reported that road users in the city are set to be inconvenienced by road works on a section of the A59, which may be set to lead to diversions and traffic flow issues.
