Alreeeet! Welcome to Speak Up Sunderland!

Join Betty Ball & Stevie B for this weekly podcast, proudly made both in and about Sunderland!

Last week, we visited the opening of the Northern Spire bridge; connecting the two areas of Pallion & Castletown together across the river Wear.

After just over three years of construction over the past three years, the bridge was opened to pedestrians on Tuesday August 28th.  We met with visitors to the bridge, and two counsellors behind the scenes:

  • Cllr. Graeme Miller, Leader of the Sunderland Council
  • Chief Operating Officer for Economy and Place Les Clark
