Queue Reduction Tips

Our Seven Point Plan for a smoother journey

Whilst the Board is doing everything to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum, there are a number of ways that motorists can do their bit to help.

Here is a handy “Seven-point plan” that bridge users can follow to make their journey across the Humber Bridge quicker and smoother for everyone:

  1. Please ensure that you have the right change, or pre-paid tickets available when you approach the toll booths.
  2. If at all possible, try to plan your bridge crossing at an off-peak time. We appreciate this is unavoidable for those commuting, but your social visits across the bridge will probably be a lot quicker if you travel on evenings and weekends.
  3. If convenient, look to car share with friends or colleagues who are making the same journey.
  4. Three payment points will be open on the bridge at peak times, so please make sure you use them all. Look out for all the open booths (these will be clearly signposted) – not just those with a queue of traffic.
  5. Please do not stop on the toll plaza, except at the toll booths, as this may block lanes and cause a build-up of traffic. If you need to pull over to look for change, please use the laybys on the approach roads.
  6. There is a good chance that any questions you may have for our toll booth operators during this busy time can be answered prior to your journey on our website. Doing this will not only improve the smoothness of your journey, but also that of other motorists.
  7. Finally, make sure you are fully up-to-date with the latest traffic news by downloading the new Humber Bridge Updates app. It is free and is available from iTunes and Google Play, or from the Play or App Store on your device.

Everyone at the Humber Bridge Board is thankful for your support and patience in this matter.
