    At least you're on a bike and can do a swift U turn. Once you get on that expressway or the other drag to Whitchurch, you're on it for miles before you can turn around. I've only just learnt to find the same place twice in a row after years of trying.

    Do what I do whenever plans are announced to rip us off. Don't go there.

    I know it's a sad situation but it's why i've never been outside of Vauxhall Road.
    Some of us have to go there to work. An extra ?672 a year based on 48 weeks and the same toll as the tunnels (?1.40), which is what they have mooted as being the cost.

    Some of us live in Widnes too.

The councillors at Halton Borough Council insist that it is the Government who insist on tolling the new bridge, but they havent apparently insisted that both bridges must be tolled.

    Oh, and the legislation has already been activated for the coucil to put tolls into place. So despite a public enquiry, it apears to be a done deal already.
    Happy tolling!
    What they will do is have one bridge one-way and the one bridge the other. Only one takes a toll the new one. They will figure that those who go one way will go back.

    I stopped cycling to Runcorn when it took too long getting back and now drive a car i share with family through it to go South sometimes.

    If i get lost on a bike, i end up getting tired and struggle to get home from somewhere like Runcorn.
