What is merseyflow?

Merseyflow is the brand name of the organisation who collect the tolls 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 toll 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.
