It’s now over a month since the Mersey Gateway opened. In this period approximately 60 to 70 thousand vehicles a day have crossed the cable-stayed bridge, making over 2 million journeys. The project was championed by Halton Borough Council in order to ease congestion caused by lack of capacity on the existing Silver Jubilee Bridge. The benefits to the local region are already apparent, with journey times speeded up across the region.
Ramboll has played a huge role in the realising the bridge, from the project inception in 2001 through business case creation, remediation, construction, the opening and will continue into 2018. In the short video you’ll see wonderful footage of the bridge, and get the inside story, told by those responsible for its delivery. The e-book provides stunning photos, facts and figures about the project.

Ramboll has played a significant role in the Mersey Gateway project, the central feature of the significant highway improvements between the M56 and Speke Road. It is a new six-lane cable-stayed tolled bridge across the Mersey Estuary between Runcorn and Widnes.
