Mersey Gateway wins special recognition award at the North West Institution of Civil Engineers Awards 2018
In recognition of ICE’s bicentenary and a phenomenal feat of engineering which has changed the local skyline, the Mersey Gateway project has been awarded the ICE 200 Special Award.
The Council and the Mersey Gateway Crossings Board (MGCB) are seeking views as part of a three-week consultation starting today (8 March 2018) on the proposed changes to the tolling scheme, which could see even more users receive unlimited travel across the Mersey Gateway Bridge.
The £1.86bn Mersey Gateway Project has been shortlisted for two awards at both the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North West Civil Engineering Awards 2018 and the RICS Awards 2018.
