I have a comment to make about the first Tyne Tunnel, which was completed in 1967. There’s a few words to describe the tunnel.
It seems dirty, and too long. I think there are better value and more efficient and tidier tunnels in Britain, and you seem to get through these tunnels quicker.
The opening of the second tunnel has only eased the burden and stress of the old tunnel as it’s shortened journeys to South Tyneside by a little bit.
