The Tyne Tunnels form part of the A19 strategic route, between North Yorkshire and Northumberland. Linking the stunning coastal towns and busy ports of the North East, and offering a convenient and dependable link to the region's airports, the A19 is the smart motorist's choice for leisure and for business.
With two dual-lane vehicle tunnels connecting Jarrow in South Tyneside with Wallsend in North Tyneside, congestion is restricted to other North East routes, with traffic flowing freely around the clock through the award-winning Tyne Tunnels.
Running alongside the road tunnels TT2 also maintains the 1951-built Pedestrian and Cyclist Tyne Tunnels on behalf of the Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority.
All Tyne Tunnels are open 24 hours a day. Motorists are asked to pay a toll for travelling through the road tunnels, while pedestrians and cyclists travel free through the Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels.
