Lane Restrictions on The Tyne Bridge

Starting 13 May the Newcastle City Council in partnership with Gateshead Council will deliver essential maintenance works to replace the bridge expansion joints on the iconic structure, which were originally installed back in 2000 and are now coming to the end of their natural life.

The works will be carried out on 7 consecutive nights from Sunday 13 May through to 20 May 2018. During this time, the northbound traffic over the Tyne Bridge will be reduced to one lane with the bridge being closed to southbound traffic, which will be diverted to the Redheugh Bridge. Read more.
