Humber Bridge sees increase in LGV traffic after toll is cut

The Humber Bridge Crossing saw an 11% increase in truck traffic in 2012/13, after the toll was cut last year.

Some 31,000 extra journeys were made during the year ended 31 March 2013 compared to the previous year, after the charge for a single crossing by a vehicle weighing over 7.5-tonnes was slashed to £12.

However, the figures released by the Humber Bridge Board also revealed that the number of vans using the crossing fell by 16%, with 37,000 fewer journeys made.

The toll for a single crossing was cut from £20.30 in April 2012, after the chancellor wrote down the debt owed by the bridge by £120m.

In January, the toll for a single LGV journey over the Severn Crossing in the South West rose from £18.10 to £18.60.
