A new scheme will allow visitors to pay without cash at one of the region’s top commuter routes.
Contactless payment systems have been installed at Clifton Suspension Bridge which, in addition to coins, will mean drivers can pay through enabled cards, phones and wearable devices.
The bridge opened in 1864 and has more than four million vehicle crossings a year.
It joins Bristol to North Somerset and is owned and operated by the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust.
NMI, a global payments software company, has worked with the trust to install the technology.

Bridge master Trish Johnson said: “With people carrying less cash and contactless payments becoming the UK’s most popular and fastest payment method, it was of utmost importance to the trust to give our users the choice to use their preferred payments option and speeding up payments on the bridge.”
