Preparatory work for the £117million new Wear Crossing is gathering pace - and this time-lapse video shows the changing face of Sunderland’s riverside.
Progress has stepped up in recent weeks, with work under way in the river on foundations to support the bridge’s 105m-tall pylon.
The videos show the demolition of disused warehouses on the bridge site, and the construction of a bank on the south side of the river.
* The Echo has joined forces with Sunderland City Council to find a name for the bridge.
The first phase will agree on a theme for the name, after which people will be asked to vote on their favourite from a shortlist.
