Tour the Tunnels

As part of our £6.9M refurbishment plans, the North East Combined Authority (NECA) has approved the replacement of two of the existing wooden escalators with inclined lifts.

The new lifts are needed as, after nearly 60 years of service, much of the wooden escalator equipment has now exceeded its designed lifespan.

To see how the inclined lifts would work, please click on the image above to take a fly through of the Grade II listed tunnels in virtual reality.
