Tomorrow, as a member of the Merseyside Integrated Transport Authority (MITA) I shall be attending the full Authority meeting that will determine the budget for 2010/11. One of the items on the agenda talks about Mersey Tunnel Tolls. You can read more of my postings on that by clicking, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE
Over the last week or so, I have, and I continue to ask questions of senior Merseytravel officers, so that I can explore options that may allow the Conservative Group on Merseytravel to move amendments to the Tunnels issue, to try to minimise the toll burden, however the final decision on the tunnels and the budget is a matter for the 18 elected Members who serve on the Authority. I will keep an open mind on all the matters on the agenda and will listen to all the arguments put forward on the why’s and wherefores of the budgetry issues before I make my final decision on which way to vote.
