Shields Ferry To Remain Suspended Till Just Before Xmas
The Shields Ferry is to remain suspended until just before Christmas while urgent repairs are carried out on the North Shields ferry landing.
Structural damage was found on the North Shields jetty at the beginning of November and the cross-Tyne service has been closed since then as a safety precaution.
The structural damage needs extensive repairs and is currently declared as unsafe to use. Nexus had to carry out a full structural survey and procure a specialist contractor before the works could get underway safely.
A half hourly bus service is running between the two landings via Tyne Tunnel while ferry crossings are suspended and you can download the timetable by clicking here.
