The number of members on the Humber Bridge Board will reduce from 22 to 4, due to changes made by Transport Secretary Justine Greening.
It is the first step in a 2 part process to reform the Humber Bridge Board. The board will now have 1 member from each of the Humber area local authorities.
A private bill to make 2 private sector representatives nominated by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership full voting members of board will be introduced later this year.
The government wrote down the Humber Bridge debt by £150 million on 31 March and the bridge toll for cars was reduced from £3 to £1.50 on 1 April.
