Toll booths on the Humber Bridge will be closed from this evening to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus.

All traffic will be directed through tag lanes to protect members of staff, key workers and those travelling for essential reasons. All other drivers are being asked to avoid travel if they can.

Standard toll charges will remain in place. Those using the bridge who do not have a HumberTag can pay online once they have made a crossing and are asked to allow 24 hours for their registration to be uploaded. Drivers have 14 days to pay the fee.
