Anyone wanting to travel from one side of the Tyne to the other will still be able to make the trip without heading into Newcastle, however. The team behind the tunnel has said the southbound tunnel will be open as a bi-directional.

A single lane will be going North and a single lane will go South to ensure residents can still travel across the weekend.
