Mersey Gateway Launches Consultation

Mersey Gateway Launches Consultation

The Mersey Gateway Crossings Board Ltd, on behalf of Halton Borough Council (“Council”), is conducting a consultation in connection with the Council’s proposals to (i) modify the existing River Mersey (Mersey Gateway Bridge) Order 2011 and (ii) implement a new Road User Charging Scheme Order.

The aforementioned proposals will entitle the Council to rely upon the Road User Charging Schemes (Penalty Charges, Adjudication and Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2013 to collect unpaid toll/charges incurred by users of the Mersey Gateway Bridge and Silver Jubilee Bridge.

For more detail about the consultation (along with the key consultation document) and information about how to respond, click here.

The consultation period will run from 9 February 2015 – 11 March 2015.

The consultation is seeking views from statutory consultees (as well as other public bodies) organisations and/or businesses and members of the public regarding the Council’s proposals outlined in the consultation document.
