Warburton Bridge

The Warburton Bridge will be Toll-Free this Friday between 4:30pm and 7:30pm courtesy of the Sale Sharks.
The hope is that this will alleviate rush-hour congestion by the barriers being continuously lifted, meaning that the Friday night commute home will be swifter and travel will be smoother to the AJ Bell Stadium for Sale Sharks’ match against Toulouse in the European Challenge Cup.

Nice thought. The toll bridge isn't much but a kind consideration non the less.

Shame I can't take advantage, I'm working sad smiley

Good initiative, surprised not thought of before. If we assume that 200 cars use it each way, it will cost the club £50!

Yes, it's the time saving rather than the cost saving that's the important factor - good move by the club.

Presumably the club have agreed to finance every car crossing the bridge between 4.30 and 7.30pm, rather than just those that may be going to the game. I would have thought that there would be more than 200 cars each way during that 3 hour window, particularly with it being Friday night rush hour? Even so, it is so cheap that even if the figure was 1000 cars each way, it is hardly going to bankrupt us!

I think that the point is to reduce the traffic buildup, which can be considerable, rather than to subsidise the fans journey, so many he cost is irrelevant....

A great initiative, thank-you

Thanks Swanny... to be fair the bridge hasn't been an issue of late possibly due the lower crowds coming to the game, but anything that speeds up the journey helps. The real issues occur at short notice when there are problems on the M6

It's always free on the way home. I think they stop taking tolls by 9/10 pm.

Great initiative though. Certainly worth making it a regular thing or at least until the road infrastructure is sorted near the stadium.

I thought there was a honesty box for when the toll booth was not manned...??

I wouldn't have thought so. I'll slow down and take a look next time I traverse the bridge late at night.
