Tyne toll tunnel

Tyne Tunnels[1] are 2-lane vehicular toll tunnels and run under the River Tyne in North East England. 

The 7 mile toll tunnels connect the town of Jarrow on the south bank of the river with North Shields and Howdon on the northern end. Tyne Tunnels go downstream to the east of Newcastle upon Tyne and form part of the A19 road.

A Tyne Tunnel pre-paid account[3] is an automatic electronic tag attached to the vehicle’s windscreen. It allows payments to be made in advance for trips through the tunnel.

How does a Tyne Tunnel permit work

An online application is to be submitted for a Tyne Tunnel permit. Once the application is processed, a tag will be received to fix the windscreen of the vehicle. As the vehicle approaches the toll lane tunnel, the toll system identifies the tag and confirms that the account has sufficient credit, after which the barrier will be raised to allow a pass-through. Cash will have to be paid if the account has insufficient credit.
