Concern over Mersey Gateway Bridge project

21 June 2013
Campaign for Better Transport has responded to the announcement of Merseylink Consortium as the preferred bidder for the Mersey Gateway bridge.

Stephen Joseph, Chief Executive, Campaign for Better Transport said

"There remain big questions about the Mersey Gateway Bridge project which must be resolved before contracts are signed. Financing through tolls could create risk for the local authority and potentially for national government, too."
