I will hopefully have more to post about this at the weekend, but for now:
Sunderland City Council scraps plan to build £118million bridge across the Wear
Bridge collapse! The rise and fall of Sunderland’s ill-fated Iconic River Wear crossing
Scared off? Sunderland’s landmark bridge architect Stephen Spence reveals his biggest regret over project axe
Sunderland scraps costly Wear bridge plans

The official council report can be found online, although it offers few answers to the key questions such as: just how much over budget were the two tenders submitted? How much money has been spent on the abortive design?
