MOTORISTS will soon be able to use the internet to find out about congestion on the Silver Jubilee Bridge.
Halton Borough Council has installed cameras at both ends of the bridge to provide real-time pictures of traffic at peak times.
New Government legislation means local councils must provide drivers with details about congestion.
Traffic jams cost UK businesses up to £20bil-lion each year.
Motorist Ged Gudley, who commutes daily to Liverpool, said: 'At least one day a month I get caught in horrific traffic, which can often turn my 40 minute commute to two hours plus.
'If I could check the status of the bridge and I could see there was a problem, I could choose an alternative route or delay my journey.'
