Latest Mersey Gateway research shows project expected to bring over 4,000 job gains to the region as public inquiry date is announced
New research published by Halton Borough Council has backed the council’s bid to build a new toll bridge over the River Mersey between Runcorn and Widnes.
The government has approved an additional £6million of funding for the Mersey Gateway Project to help finance the project’s development.
The team leading the project to build a new bridge over the River Mersey has welcomed today’s (Tuesday 30 September) announcement from the Department for Transport that there will be a public inquiry into the plans.
The Mersey Gateway project was in the spotlight last night (Monday 14 July) as Warrington Borough Council’s council’s Executive Board put forward their views about the proposals.
Full details for the Mersey Gateway Project have been submitted to the Department for Transport.
The proposals, contained in a set of legal orders, confirm that the project is on track to deliver its main aim – an iconic new bridge with toll levels similar to Mersey Tunnel tolls.
