Northbound Weekend Tunnel Closure for Safety Exercise

This Saturday evening (12 October), the northbound Tyne Tunnel will close in order to carry out a compulsory safety training exercise. During this time the southbound Tyne Tunnel will be bi-directional.

The tunnel will close from 8pm on Saturday and re-open again at approximately 5pm on Sunday.

The safety training exercise, which happens every four years, is a joint exercise between TT2 Limited, North and South Tyneside Councils and the emergency services to ensure that the tunnels are safe in the event of an emergency.
