The Tyne Bridge

Our £41.4 million bid to refurbish our iconic Tyne Bridge and upgrade Central Motorway was approved by the Department for Transport.

Government is providing £35.3 million, with Newcastle and Gateshead councils contributing just over £6 million.

Before we can begin restoration works - to access this funding - we need to carry out detailed inspections of the Tyne Bridge and provide full, detailed costings to the Government.

This work has started and will take place during summer 2022.
