Tamartag log in

TamarTag Log in is the name of the Electronic Toll Collection system at the Tamar Bridge and Torpoint Ferry crossings. The system uses safe, secure and reliable communications technology to perform an electronic monetary transaction between a vehicle passing through one of the toll facilities and the toll operator.

Built between 1959 and 1961, it is a road bridge located in Saltash, in the vicinity of the Royal Albert Bridge of the famous engineer Isambard Kingdon Brunel. It consists of a steel lattice girder that supports a concrete board; All of this is hanging from a cable supported by simple towers. The total length is 563 m, with a central span of 335 m.

In 2002, some lateral platforms were added to allow the crossing of the pedestrians on both sides of the board, and as a consequence it was necessary to add some suspenders to the previous structure. This solution was worthy of several prizes, since it was the first enlargement with corbels made in a suspension bridge. To do the work it was not necessary to suspend the traffic.
