The Humber Bridge toll booths are set to overhaul and scrapped to introduce new cashless transactions to ease the daily queues and crossing.
The scheme has undergone a new payment method where you can do the transfer without hesitance.
Presently, motorists using the bridge can either opt for toll booths or buy a Tag attached to their vehicle to detect while crossing the bridge. The toll will be deducted from the driver’s online account.
Previously, the Tyne Tunnel has also adopted a new ‘open road tolling‘ systematised with traffic lights, barriers, and journeys recorded through automatic number plate recognition cameras.
