Route outline (key)
B1539 Queen Alexandra Bridge

The B1539 is the Queen Alexandra Bridge in Sunderland. It was created in August 2018, when the Northern Spire diverted the A1231 away from the bridge.

Route

The southern end of Queen Alexandra Bridge

The B1539 starts at a large roundabout with the A1290. Going south from there crosses the Queen Alexandra Bridge over the River Wear. The Stadium of Light, home to Sunderland AFC, is visible to the left on the approach to the bridge. At the southern end of the bridge the road turns left at a roundabout, where it meets the A1231.

History

The Queen Alexandra Bridge was originally part of the B1290. When the new-build D2 to the west was completed in the late 1970s it was renumbered A1231, which lasted until the Northern Spire bridge opened in 2018.
