The bit between the Northern Spire and Pallion seems to be open now but where does that bit go to?
Is the whole road open?

I can confirm that the whole road was open when I used it yesterday.

I tried that stretch of road out and it's 30mph for half the way, then 40mph.
Yes, I am going to whinge again because it was supposed to be a dual carriageway from Nissan to the Sunderland Docks.
Dual carriageways are supposed to be efficient :headscratch:
In my opinion, the whole road between the Docks and the beginning of the Sunderland Highway has taken a step back.
It will relieve traffic on the QA Bridge and allow emergency vehicles to pass with ease but it's a miss from me I'm affraid.
