Humber Bridge automated tolling on the way

  • 24 April 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

An automated tolling system to allow HGVs to use the Humber Bridge without visiting a toll booth could be operational this autumn, following the introduction of new toll booths.

Work is already underway to reduce the number of toll booths from six to three in order to accommodate automatic tolling infrastructure and two free-flow lanes.

The Humber Bridge Board, the authority operating the crossing, plans to introduce the automatic system between autumn this year and spring 2015.

The updated booths (pictured below) are expected to be in use in June or early July. Manual payment of tolls at the booths will continue until the automated system is installed, and one staffed booth will remain in place.

Bridgemaster Peter Hill said the authority has tried to minimise delays for operators while work is being carried out.

Hill said: “The booths will pave the way for us to introduce the automated tolling system and free flow lanes but customers must be aware that that isn’t the end of the work by quite a way.

“Automated tolling is the ultimate aim and is certainly on the way, but bridge users will have to wait a little while longer before they can take full advantage of it,” he added.

Last year, the Humber Bridge Board said it has no plans to increase tolls when the new system comes into effect.
