Reasons for signing

  • Liverpool resident for 55 years . Moved out of area and now getting penalised to subsidise other users of the tunnel. 50% increase is disgusting . Mr Rotheram is penalising the working class here including many NHS and other public service workers who have hardly received a wage increase for the last 10 years - shame on you. I don't remember the terms and conditions of signing up for fast tag stating that we would be subsidising other tunnel users.
  • I've worked in liverpool for 30 years and contributed every day to local businesses and paid for the tunnel and parking, why should I be penalised for contributing all this time.
  • As someone who works in Liverpool and pays to park there every day, this is another tax on going to work. The merseyrail train lines extend to Ellesmere Port and Chester so why can’t the tunnel region do the same??
