The Department’s assessment of the business case for the Crossing, which included a consideration of the overall effects of tolling levels on road users, showed that the new Crossing will reduce congestion and improve journey times for users. Tolling levels for the new Mersey Gateway Crossing are the responsibility of Halton Borough Council. Any assessment of the local impact of these tolls is a matter for the Council rather than this Department.
