Humber Bridge toll booths reopen this month

But cash will not be accepted

The Humber Bridge toll booths will reopen later this month following recent government guidance, but cash payments will not be accepted.

The bridge spans the Humber between Barton Upon Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire with North Lincolnshire.

Traffic has been steadily increasing over recent weeks so the Humber Bridge Board has decided to reopen the toll booth lanes on Monday, June 29.

The booths have been closed since March 29 and since that date all traffic crossing the bridge has been using the open road ‘TAG Lane’. However, after carrying out the relevant risk assessments and implementing safety measures, the board decided it would be safe to reopen the lanes again later this month.

Customers without a TAG can pay via the new contactless payment terminals on the outside of the booths. They accept credit and debit cards, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.
