​Crossings Payment Information

​​Merseyflow.co.uk is the official website for tolls/charges and the only place you can register online to get discounts on tolls/charges or monthly passes to cross the Mersey Gateway Bridge and the Silver Jubilee Bridge.

This even applies to people who live in Halton – where eligible local residents can make as many trips as they like at no extra cost but only if they are successfully registered with the Local User Discount Scheme (LUDS) via Merseyflow (fees apply when registering).  

There are no payment booths on the Mersey Gateway or Silver Jubilee bridges – which means quicker, easier and more reliable journeys – but you still need to pay to cross them

You can pay up to 12 months before you cross the Mersey Gateway or Silver Jubilee bridges or until 11.59pm the day after you cross. If you don’t pay on time you will receive a Penalty Charge Notice of up to £60.
