One tunnel is currently in operation in the Liverpool area, joining Liverpool to Birkenhead, the 'Mersey Tunnel'.
A new bridge is being built nearby connecting Runcorn to Widness, the Mersey Gateway Bridge, which should be in operation in 2017. Once the new bridge is built, the existing Silver Jubilee Bridge will also be charged for travel.
There are reduced residents fees and multi-journey ticket available.
