Northern Spire opens to traffic on 29th August

At last, the Northern Spire will open on Wednesday 29th August but that's for vehicular traffic.
The first three vehicles to cross it will be from the Nissan plant in Sunderland.
Then its over to the people :thumbup:

However, you can cross the bridge before Wednesday.
That's right, people will be allowed to walk over it on the Tuesday before from noon to 8pm.
See you all there on Tuesday then :thumbup:

According to some idiots out there, the bridge had loads of faults. Some were spreading rumours about the A-frame sinking etc etc :lol:
Can't wait for it to open and I will be walking over it next Tuesday.

The conspiracy theorists were all at it with this bridge :lol:
Nice to see the finishing work is almost complete.
I might take a dodge down on Tuesday night.
