Good News and Bad!

At todays Merseytravel budget meeting I was delighted to support officers recommendations that there should be NO increase on Payable Mersey Tunnel Tolls for the coming municipal year, however because of the Tunnels Act 2004 we have no control over the Authorised Tolls which have risen again this year!  

I am keen that those regular users who buy fast tags should be given every opportunity to access further discounts and as such I moved an amendment to the recommendation which asked officers to investigate if there was any way of giving a bigger discount to fast tag users.    I was absolutely gobsmacked when all the Labour Councillors on Merseytravel voted against my amendment which costs absolutely nothing to the Authority other than some Officer time.
