Humber Bridge tolls suspended amid M180 traffic chaos

Humber Bridge Tolls have been suspended for 24 hours, until midday tomorrow due to the increased traffic levels caused by road works on the M180.

Drivers are being advised to seek alternative routes, as the motorway has been closed eastbound for essential resurfacing work, says the Highways Agency.

Drivers are being diverted via the A18 at junction 1, however the diversion route is heavily congested.

The closure point on the M180 has been amended and is now at junction 1 as the diversion route from this junction is better able to cope with the traffic volumes exiting the M180. This junction 1 to 3 closure will remain in place until Monday 11 August at 6am.

– The Highways Agency

Conservative and Unionist MP for Brigg & Goole, Andrew Percy, has been trying to get the Highways Agency to come up with an alternative plan.
