TUNNEL: Still waiting for opening

editorial image

The Tyne Pedestrian Tunnel was closed in May 2013 to allow for refurbishment at a predicted cost of £6.9million.

It was stated that this closure would be for approximately one year.

Now, more than four years later, it remains closed.

Can the Mayor inform the council taxpayers of North Tyneside when the tunnel is due to re-open?

Following such a lengthy delay, what is now the forecast final cost?
