The impact of SSTC3 on potential archaeological and historic assets along the route of the new road has been an important consideration from the early stages of the planning process and throughout the pre-construction and construction phases of the project.
Sunderland City Council's SSTC3 project has been named Project of the Year in the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) Project of the Year 2020/21 for North East and Cumbria. The project, which forms the third phase of the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC) project, was recognised for its collaborative efforts to manage the scheme throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
