The Mersey Gateway Project

In September or October 2017 the new Mersey Gateway Bridge will open. It will be a new six lane toll bridge over the Mersey between the towns of Runcorn and Widnes and will open to relieve the congested and ageing Silver Jubilee Bridge. Both the new Mersey Gateway Bridge and the Silver Jubilee Bridge will be tolled, but they will be free for eligible Halton residents to cross providing they have registered with merseyflow.
