Toll Charges

How much will it cost to cross the bridges?

The costs for crossing the two bridges vary for different types of vehicles, and there are various special discount packages available and several ways to reduce your journey cost.

  • Eligible Halton residents can pay a £10 annual admin fee and then make as many personal trips as they like across the river at no extra cost.
  • Blue Badge holders can cross both bridges unlimited at no extra charge once they have successfully registered and paid a £5 one-off registration fee.
  • Anyone, wherever they live, can save up to 10% on the unregistered toll by registering for a pre-pay sticker account and paying a £5 one-off fee.
  • Anyone who drives a car or a small van can cap their costs by buying an 'unlimited travel' or 'off-peak' monthly pass.

You will be able to drive over both bridges without registering, but by doing this you will have to pay the full unregistered toll cost for each journey you make either in advance or by 11.59 pm the day after you cross. If you don’t pay on time you will receive a Penalty Charge Notice.
