The project which has been on going for 3 year, finally seen closure as the Northern Spire Bridge opened to the public on August 28th. 

The iconic piece of engineering, with it's gleaming white A-frame focal point, will become a vital new transport link within the regeneration plans of Sunderland. 

With a height of 105 metres, the £117.6 million three span cable-stayed bridge crosses the River Wear between Castletown on the North to Pallion on the south bank.

The design includes a curves steel pylon approximately 105 metres high making the bridges spire taller than big ben and twice the height of Nelsons Column in London.

The overal span of 330 metres compromises two lanes of traffic in each direction dedicated to cycle ways and footpaths along the full length of the crossing.
