East Yorkshire traffic up on Humber Bridge but revenue is down
Traffic has increased by nine per cent since the Humber Bridge tolls were reduced in April, but revenue is down nearly 40 per cent.
Tolls for cars has been halved to £1.50 while charges for motorcycles have been scrapped completely. Lorry drivers are also enjoying a reduction – the toll is now £12 instead of £18.
Business leaders hoped the move would boost the Humber region's economy. The new charges were brought in after the Government agreed to write off £150 million of the outstanding debt.
