Thomas Lowther, Sunderland City Manager at Neuron Mobility, has expressed his delight at the riding area being expanded to cover the IMAP.

He said: “After a successful trial period so far, we are delighted that our e-scooters will be serving the iconic International Advanced Manufacturing Park on Washington Road.

“Our e-scooters are making a positive impact on the city and we are excited to extend this to the workers at the plant.

"They are a safe, convenient and environmentally-friendly transport option which support greener travel alongside the City Council’s sustainability goals.

Workers at the IMAP can now use Neuron's e-scooters to commute to and from work.
