Lift works are finished early

Have your say

WORKS on the lifts in the historic Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels have been completed ahead of schedule in a single weekend.

The works were originally planned over two weekends of February 22-25 and March 1-4.

The tunnels are due to close for a year for refurbishment after Easter, when a free timetabled shuttle bus service will be in operation.
