Tyne Bridge

About the project

The world’s famous Tyne Bridge, linking the City of Newcastle with the town of Gateshead, it’s no secret that this busy dual carriage way is the most popular route to cross the River Tyne.

In the heart of Newcastle City Centre, surrounded by lively bars, a vibrant shopping centre and world renowned businesses it’s no wonder 2 million people visit this area every year.

The Tyne Bridge is not shy to TV and features in many programmes and is a significant sign of The North East. However, the Tyne Bridge is most commonly known for the Great North Run where each year 52,000 runners pass over the bridge.
