Transport Secretary Justine Greening will reduce the number of members on the Humber Bridge Board from 22 to 4.

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.
