Business as usual on the Mersey Gateway following Traffic Penalty Tribunal hearing

A Traffic Penalty Tribunal (TPT) public hearing took place this week (8th May) to review decisions made previously by the TPT in relation to five individual appeals to Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) issued following non-payment of the Mersey Gateway toll.

A spokesperson for the Mersey Gateway Crossings Board said: “The new Charging Order that came into effect on the 19th April 2018 now regulates tolling on Mersey Gateway, so it is very much business as usual today and it’s really important that everyone pays their toll charges to avoid the risk of getting a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

The five cases were brought  under the 2017 Road User Charging Scheme Order which has now been superseded. We’re pleased that the review hearing has taken place and that we have had the opportunity to clearly explain our case. We look forward to receiving the review adjudicator’s decision when published.”
