The Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC) is a major infrastructure and multi-phase highways programme that will open up and link major regeneration of a number of sites identified in Sunderland. 

The separate SSTC Phase 3 scheme then has a number of objectives which are:

  • To support and facilitate development in Sunderland to take place and to be readily accessible by public/private transport and by pedestrians and cyclists,
  • To improve access to training and employment opportunities throughout Sunderland by providing better connectivity between major employment sites including Nissan and the Port of Sunderland, education providers and residential areas,
  • To reduce traffic congestion on transport corridors by increasing highway capacity and the speed of and reliability of transport links, and
  • To improve the urban environment and road safety for all road users that are currently adversely affected by heavy traffic congestion
