Southbound: When exiting the roundabout the current speed limit is 40mph. As the Open Road Toll lane approaches the speed limit decreases to 30mph through the toll plaza, as you reach the main flow of the Humber Bridge the speed limit increases to 50mph until the exit onto the national speed limit dual carriageway.

Northbound: When travelling from the A15 dual carriageway, the national speed limit applies. As you approach the Humber Bridge the speed limit decreases to 50mph, upon reaching the northside as the Open Road Toll lane approaches the limit decreases again to 30mph, once you’ve passed through the toll plaza the speed limit increases to 40mph leading on to the roundabout.


The Control team monitors the Humber Bridge 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. If you break down or have an accident a member of the Control team will come to your assistance as soon as they are able.

Live traffic information, along the approach to the bridge, is supplied by National Highways. Road users are provided with information about road conditions, providing advanced warning of roadworks, accidents, bad weather conditions, and road closures.


The Humber Bridge is over 40 years old and was designed to last for 120 years. As the bridge approaches the second part of its design life it requires more maintenance work to be completed.

Occasionally the maintenance tasks we carry out whilst caring for the Bridge require us to close parts to traffic or pedestrians. We may have to introduce traffic controls. We aim to keep disruption to a minimum, scheduling works for off-peak times. Scheduled maintenance activities, including any partial closures of the Humber Bridge, are listed below.

Works Underneath Ferriby Road Bridge 27th JulyNovember 2023

We will be carrying out essential maintenance work to the underneath of Ferriby Road bridge starting on Thursday 27th July until November 2023

To ensure safety of the travelling public and the workforce, we will need to install local lane closures on Ferriby Road itself at various times throughout the works. 

30th November – Overnight works to take place on the Humber Bridge

Important winter maintenance work is set to take place on the Bridge from 7pm this Thursday (30th November) until 6am the following morning (1st December). 

Both tag lanes will be closed during this time and there will be traffic management in place across the full length of the bridge in both directions. You will still be able to cross the Bridge and HumberTag customers will be able to use the toll booths. By carrying out the work overnight, we are able to minimise impact on traffic as much as possible.

Drivers are urged to allow extra time for their journeys in order to minimise any potential disruptions.  

Works of this nature are weather dependent, meaning that they may need to be cancelled and rescheduled at short notice. Should this occur, more information will be provided on our social media channels.
