New Wear crossing inches closer to being built

The short-list of potential contractors for Sunderland’s multi-million pound New Wear Crossing is being finalised, according to Sunderland City Council today.

The council hopes to name the short-listed contractors later this year following an initial pre-qualification stage. Sunderland City Council invited bids for the £117M New Wear Crossing last October.

The contractors update was part of a construction report issued to Sunderland City Council cabinet today. Other information in the update included an anticipated project spend of £980,000 in 2012 which will include procurement, site and design work.

The Department of Transport agreed £82.6M funding to the scheme in December, which includes a new bridge of the wear and associated upgrades in the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC).
