Opens to traffic today. New bridge between Runcorn and Widnes which spans the Mersey and which you can cross for a fee / toll. Its designed to take the pressure off the toll free existing Jubilee Bridge - this will be closed for some maintenance then when it reopens it will do so with a fanfare AND tolls !! Cheeky bastards. Take away the free bridge open the tolled bridge then once everybody adjusts to the fait accompli reopen the freebie but charge for that too. That would be because motorists who use the crossing use fuel that has no taxes levied on it and pay no road fund license on vehicles that were purchased tax free so as they don't pay any taxes on their motoring can now join in via a toll - got us all by the short hairs when it comes to cars - take money off you for the upkeep of roads - then start fucking putting tolls on the roads you are already paying for !!
