Description"The 360m long bridge was built for the Tyne and Wear Metro system and was opened in 1981 by the Queen. Metro trains then ran from the Haymarket to Gateshead and Heworth in 1984, and later to South Shields and Sunderland in 2003. The bridge supports two tracks which enter tunnels at both ends http://www.bridgesonthetyne.co.uk/metro.html There is a photo taken during building in 1978 here [] which also shows the huge changes that have taken place on Skinnerburn Road at the foot of Forth Banks []" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
