LD08 OMJ This Land Rover Discovery 3 is “Tunnel 1” and is used to patrol the Tyne Tunnels. On the front are two large black pads. These rubber pads are used to push broken-down vehicles out of the tunnel. The soft rubber avoids any damage. This system is preferred to towing vehicles a few hundred metres to get them out of the tunnel.
A look at the side livery of the Discovery.
The Discovery is parked up, observing vehicles using the North exit. Automated toll booths are used.
A close-up look at the light bar fitted. Eight panels of red LEDs can be seen on the lower layer, with blue lights on top.
