Humber Bridge Board announcement

The Humber Bridge Board have announced that bikes may go free when they introduce their new electronic tag charging system.

MAG has long fought the extortionate toll fee of £1.20 on the grounds of congestion, lower pollution, low wear and tear on road surface due to low weight and single track. Infact the only time a bike actually causes congestion and inconvenience for other road users, is when they have to stop and dismount to safely access the funds for the crossing.

Due to extreme construction cost overrun and the increase in interest rates in the 1990s the debt on the bridge has soared, but MAG has always maintained that that is no reason to disproportionately charge a user group that should be encouraged as a low cost, cleaner alternative mode of personal transport.
