It’s hoped queues on the Humber Bridge will be a thing of the past now the new HumberTag system has gone live.

The HumberTag system allows motorists to pay via an electronic tag mounted in the windscreen of their vehicle and linked to an online account.

The £7.4 million scheme went live this morning, with the opening of the open road lane starting on Sunday at 10am.

Peter Hill, the Humber Bridge’s General Manager and Bridge Master, says: “This is a truly great day for the Humber Bridge and for our users. The system has been designed to make journeys across the bridge quicker and significantly reduce queues and congestion.”

Around 5,000 people have signed up for accounts. There will still be manned booths for motorists who want to continue to pay in cash.

Mr Hill says: “Using the HumberTag will be more efficient and collectively, the more people who adopt it, the more impact it will have on congestion and queues, so really, applying for a HumberTag is the best solution all round.”

    “This is a truly great day for the Humber Bridge and for our users” Not for the toll booth operators now making their own queue down at the dole office. Go figure.
