What is merseyflow?

Merseyflow is the brand name of the organisation who collect the tolls/charges for crossing either the new Mersey Gateway Bridge, or the Silver Jubilee Bridge once it re opens. The merseyflow toll system is operated by emovis, an international free-flow tolling specialist appointed by Halton Borough Council to introduce tolling on the new and existing bridges.

What does free-flow tolling mean?

Free-flow tolling means there are no payment booths – so no need to stop as you cross the river – which means quicker, easier and more reliable journeys. Instead, merseyflow use automatic number plate reading technology. This involves cameras which will be installed on both bridges and registered users get a special sticker to attach to the windscreen of their registered vehicle to enable us to identify them as they cross the river.
