West Gateshead Links to Schools

The West Gateshead Links to Schools scheme looks to reduce congestion and promote sustainable travel to school by providing genuine alternatives to the car. This is to be achieved by improving walking and cycling facilities and reducing the dangers of speeding vehicles and indiscriminate parking around school entrances.

The project proposals consist of a number of elements including:

  • Extending the 20mph zones in Whickham to create a larger inclusive safe traffic area.
  • Pedestrian and cycle crossing improvements along routes around schools.
  • Areas of footway re-surfacing and conversion to shared used footways (pedestrians & cycles).
  • Providing an additional zebra crossing on Front Street.
  • Prohibition of parking and loading along Back Row.
  • Raised carriageway at locations on Broadway and Duckpool Lane.
