The Department has agreed with Halton Borough Council that they will produce a monitoring and evaluation report, one year and five years after the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge. The five year report will include consideration of the economic effects of the scheme. The Department has no plans to undertake research on other crossings in the region.
