SUNDERLAND’S Wearmouth Bridge will remain open tonight as major works have now been complete ahead of schedule.

It was announced last week that the bridge would close overnight as Sunderland City Council re-surface and remodel its southern roundabout.

Almost one million vehicles pass through the roundabout every year.

The bridge had been due to close tonight, but major works have been completed ahead of time.
