If you are a Blue Badge holder you can cross both bridges for free once you have successfully registered with merseyflow and paid a £5 one-off registration fee.
Take a look at our animated guide for Blue Badge holders to see what you need to do to register.
You can register for an account from summer 2017.
It makes sense to register. If you don’t you will have to pay the full fee each time to use the Mersey Gateway or Silver Jubilee Bridge, and you could even get a penalty charge of £60 if you fail to pay the toll on time.
There are a couple of things you need to think about before you register.
- You can only register one vehicle to get your Blue Badge discount – so make sure you register the vehicle you will use most
- You don’t have to be the registered owner of the vehicle to register it in your name and qualify for free crossings, but…….
- As the Blue Badge holder you have to be in the vehicle to qualify for the free crossing – if someone else is using the vehicle on their own they will have to pay
Where to register?
When registration opens this summer there will be a local walk-in centre where you can register and a team available by phone and by e-mail to answer queries about the registration and payment process.
This website will be the best and easiest place to find out more information before registration opens this summer.
You will need to pay a £5 one-off registration fee and send us a copy of both sides of your blue badge to prove you qualify for the free crossings.
We’ll check your details and once we’re happy we’ll send you your special merseyflow sticker to go on the windscreen of your vehicle.
