TRAFFIC: Diversions in place as work on New Wear Crossing continues

The New Wear Crossing roadworks at Pallion Junction are entering their next phase as work continues to link the new bridge to Sunderland’s main road network.

Work will be ongoing in the Pallion Junction area until spring 2017. The section of European Way between Pallion Junction and the entrance to Pallion Industrial Estate will now be shut in both directions through until mid-July to allow the construction team to work in this area.

Diversions in place as work on new Wear Crossing continues

The existing signed diversion, via St Luke’s Road, will continue and vehicle and pedestrian access to local shops, Pallion Retail Park and Pallion Metro Station, will be maintained.

The new bridge will cross the River Wear between Wessington Way in Castletown and European Way in Pallion.
