This story is likely to run-and-run (unlike the road) for a long time, so I...

    Inspired by this post by Newcastle Historian - I think it is pretty clear that there is pressure for a new crossing over the river tyne linking Newcastle and Gateshead - car usage has increased over the past 20 years since the Redheugh, and we've lost the High Level Bridge as a car route - but...
