Vehicles travelling northbound will be asked to pay their toll after passing through the tunnel, while vehicles travelling southbound will have to pay before entering the tunnel.
Toll payments can be made with cash or with a prepaid permit. The TT2 permit offers a convenient, cashless payment option which also includes a 10% toll discount. Apply online for your Tyne Tunnels permit
