Tyne Tunnel Bylaws

The Tyne Tunnels’ Bylaws arose from the 1960 Tyne Tunnel Act.

The bylaws are a set of rules that cover everything within TT2’s area of authority. They detail how people must behave within our site, and we attempt to enforce them in a customer focused manner. The rules are designed to ensure that the tunnels are as safe as possible for all who visit them.

As well as being listed on our website (see link below) the Bylaws can be inspected at TT2’s offices, on request.
