Emovis, which is a company of our Asset Company Abertis and one of the world’s leading providers of toll-based mobility solutions, has had its contract to provide toll collection and enforcement services to the Mersey Gateway Crossings Board in the United Kingdom extended by five years. Originally appointed for a a seven-year period in 2017, the new extension means that Emovis will continue to provide the service until October 2029.

Emovis provides the services through its Merseyflow brand, employing over 100 people at its base in Runcorn. The extension of the contract will secure the long-term future of those jobs in the borough.

Almost 100 million crossings have been made across the two toll bridges since the Mersey Gateway Bridge opened in October 2017, and 80% of those journeys were by customers who have registered an account at www.merseyflow.co.uk and are benefitting from discounts on the toll charges. 

The vast majority of these registered customers have also chosen to auto top-up or are paying by direct debit which automates their payments and massively reduces the risk of receiving a PCN (penalty charge notice).
