TS-0109 Durham Road Quality Transport Corridor

In view of the responses received following the informal consultation process, various elements of the project have been re-evaluated and a revised design has been produce, which is available for review on the link below.

A summary of the proposed changes are as following:

A167 Durham Road Southbound Bus Lane

The extent of the lane has been reduce and will now commence south of Musgrave Road. The section of Durham Road between Musgrave Road and Valley Drive will retain a cycle lane and on-street parking.

Musgrave Road Closure

This proposal has now been removed from the project.

Denewell Avenue Closure

This junction will remain open; however, egress onto Durham Road will be restricted to southbound only.

Relocation of Bus Stop

Under the original proposals the bus stop currently outside commercial properties 413-415 Durham Road was to be relocated to the junction with Denewell Avenue. This proposal has now been revised and it is intended to relocate the bus stop into Low Fell shopping area.

No Exit from Lane to the rear of Durham Road

This junction will remain open; however, egress onto Durham Road will be restricted to southbound only.

As Gateshead Council is dedicated to delivering sustainable travel options across the Borough, we will be proceeding shortly with the introduction of the shared use footway on the west side of Durham Road, with the associated double yellow line parking restrictions. In the medium term we will be installing the remainder of the project in phases, however, the timeline for this has not been established.
