Yesterday there was bad news for Wirral Car Drivers when Mersey Tunnel tolls were increased yet again.  Despite strong objection from my colleague Cllr Chris Blakeley who sits on Merseytravel as the Conservative Group Leader, the Labour-Led committee forced through the rises. 

Objections had been voiced by many residents and in particular, small businesses who need to use the tunnels on a daily basis. Chris proposed two amendments to freeze the tolls and even a reduction for fast tag users. He was unfortunately voted down, by the group who keep telling us they are on the side of the working people.
