Tolling technology company Neology has signed a multimillion-pound, multi-year contract with Humber Bridge Board in the UK.
Under the terms of the deal, Neology will deliver roadside and back-office systems as well as website and mobile app solutions.
The end-to-end tolling system aims to transform toll collection across the Humber Bridge, which currently supports more than 30,000 crossings per day, by removing the current stop-go toll plazas in favour of a free-flow solution that leverages artificial intelligence-powered technology for roadside infrastructure, including Neology’s latest neoForce automatic number plate reader offering.
“The Humber Bridge is the longest single-span suspension bridge in the UK, a critical piece of infrastructure connecting core economic regions and an iconic regional landmark,” said Andrew Arundel, Humber Bridge Board COO, and a keynote speaker at last year’s Road User Charging Conference in Brussels, Belgium.

“We underwent an extensive procurement process to understand market capability to address the needs of our customers whilst also ensuring that vendor capability and long-term commitments to the project were secured.
“The Neology team has impressed us throughout the tender process, and we look forward to forging a strong partnership with them in the months and years ahead on this critical project.”
When it was officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on July 17, 1981, the Humber Bridge was said to be the largest single-span suspension bridge in the world. It’s completion – following eight years of construction – removed the need for a ferry or a drive of up to 80 miles.
