Firstly, the Sunderland Forum is all about local issues. The City of Sunderland obviously includes, Washington, Houghton and Hetton. However, we allow news, views and gossip from all areas surrounding Wearside.

The A-frame arrived on the River Wear a little later than scheduled. However, according to the Sunderland council website it should have been lifted into place on arrival.
I haven't been in a position to look yet so I can't say if it has or not.

New Wear Crossing fly-through - computer generated but gives an idea of what it will all look like :P

The Sunderland Echo has some good official drone footage of the A-frame going up.
It's still about 80 degrees or so while they prepare to drop it into its final resting place.

Rubberneckers and match traffic don't mix :lol:
