The Mersey Gateway Project

As a requirement of the legislation surrounding the Mersey Gateway Project1, Halton Borough Council shall make and enforce byelaws for the regulation and operation of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge and approach roads.

Byelaws are standard across estuarial crossings, tunnels and bridges in the UK.

In general terms, byelaws are there to regulate traffic and to exclude certain traffic and types of vehicles subject to special controls. The byelaws also prohibit damage and nuisance and in respect of the Mersey Gateway Project, define the area over which tolls are required and allow penalties for contravention.
