Details of how drivers can register for the toll system on the new Mersey Gateway bridge will be unveiled later.

The system will allow them to cross the river using both the Gateway and the Silver Jubilee Bridge, when the latter is refurbished.

Residents of Halton borough, which is connected by the two crossings, will be able to drive over for free once registered. Those living beyond Halton can access discounts by a similar process.
