    Claims new Mersey Gateway is a 500m rip-off

    MSP tells Holyrood that bridge across Firth Of Forth will be bigger and a 'fraction of the cost' of second Runcorn-Widnes road crossing.

    The new six-lane bridge across the River Mersey between Widnes and Runcorn. Due to open in autumn 2017, it is expected to cost 1.75bn. The bridge and the existing Silver Jubilee bridge will be tolled, but free for Halton residents.

    I believe that this Mersy Gateway bridge is not only shorter, smaller, lower and more expensive than the new Forth Crossing, but tolling it is typical of Tory Policy.

    There are NO bridge or road tolls anywhere in Scotland and that is down to the SNP government.

    I have to ask, can you really trust the Tories with your money ?

    Does not look like value for money as I see it.

    The fact that Bridge tolls are still in force in England is nothing more than a scandal..

    Yes, and parking charges at hospitals plus continued university fees along with road and bridge tolls, makes England and wales not so good to live in as compared with Scotland, who have none of these. ( And we have plenty of room up here too Twisted Evil ).
