    Email the Liverpool City Combined Authority leaders who have control of the Tunnels & the tolls

    Merseytravel still exists in name but ceased to be a transport authority from April 2014 when it became a committee of the new Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. It is the City Region that is now responsible for the Tunnels and the tolls
    The region has seven members - the leaders of the five Merseyside districts plus the leader of Halton Council plus a business representative. There are also 'associate members'. The associates do not have a vote on any issue and the business representative can not vote on setting the tolls.
    The Combined Authority does not control tolls on the Mersey Gateway bridge, but as the crossings are close together, the level of tolls on the Tunnels affects the bridge tolls and vice versa. EMAIL ALL seven on the Combined Authority
