Tyne Bridge Makeover

6 Feb 2024

One of the North East’s most famous icons will shine again as the government delivers a £35 million boost to restore the bridge and secure its future.

Government announce funding of £544 million as part of the Network North plan to improve local transport across the North East with a long-term plan to resurface local roads.  

Roads Minister, Guy Opperman, confirmed in Newcastle that the Tyne Bridge will undergo an extensive renovation programme, alongside major improvements on the Central Motorway East (CME) A167 to tackle congestion and improve journey times in and out of Newcastle.
