Toll Booths for the Humber Bridge

The Humber Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it opened in 1981 to cut the journey from Hull to Grimsby by 50 miles.

The bridge underwent major refurbishment beginning in the summer of 2013, with lanes resurfaced and a separate project to install an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) scheme. The Humber Bridge Board selected Spanish systems integrator SICE to renovate the tolling system, which included replacing the entire toll plaza.

SICE contacted Glasdon to supply new toll booths. Working in partnership with our technical buildings team, the client wanted to modify a custom design we had made several years earlier for a similar project on the Tamar Bridge. After securing permission from the Tamar Bridge and Torpoint Ferry Joint Committee to use the design we prepared for them, the booths were modified by our designers to accommodate the systems used for the Humber Bridge project.

SICE purchased six new booths. Installation had to be precisely arranged and managed to minimise disruption to the busy traffic route, which is used by more than 140,000 vehicles a week. Our dedicated team of specialist engineers worked off-peak hours and weekends to ensure the work was completed to schedule.
