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.
Our facility comprises two dual-lane vehicle tunnels connecting Jarrow in South Tyneside and Wallsend in North Tyneside.
Running alongside the vehicle tunnels, TT2 also operates the 1951 built Pedestrian and Cycle Tunnels on behalf of the North East Combined Authority. These tunnels are currently closed for refurbishment and scheduled to open in 2018.
The Tyne Tunnels are open 24 hours per day. Motorists are required to pay a toll for the vehicle tunnels, while access to the Pedestrian and Cycle tunnels is free.
