East Gateshead Links to School Phase 2
Gateshead Council is proposing a scheme to introduce parking restrictions on Meresyde. The first phase of the project improved pedestrian and cycling links along Meresyde by the creation of a shared use path. A review of the parking by the Council and the Police has indicated that local residents have used the shared use area as a parking space completely obstructing the new facility.
