The people behind the Mersey Gateway project between Runcorn and Widnes say revenues from tolls and fines will go to Halton Council with most reallocated on the project.
The Liverpool Echo reports that anyone failing to pay the toll on either the new Mersey Gateway bridge or the new charge on the existing Silver Jubilee crossing may face a visit from the bailiffs.
The report adds that the consortium has not said what exact proportion of the cash will be used for the bridge project and what will be left for the local authority.
However the operators promise that no personal data will be sold to third parties with road user data being deleted when no longer needed, which could vary between one month and seven years depending on the type of information and whether an event has happened that means it needs to be kept as potential evidence.
