Temporary closure of two Gateshead car parks

Mill Road and South Shore Road

Two popular car parks will be closed this month to allow for work to be carried out ahead of the proposed new £260m arena, conference and exhibition centre at Gateshead Quays.

South Shore Road Car Park will be closed from 13 - 17 January and Mill Road Car Park will have various small closures from 13 - 24 January while ground investigations are carried out.

Gateshead Quays Car Park Closure
Motorists are urged to use nearby Quarryfield Road car park, NE8 3AE. The 555-space site was built to meet the anticipated increase in demand for car parking due to major new developments at Gateshead Quays and Baltic Quarter and costs from £2 for up to two hours.

In November, Ask:Patrizia, Gateshead Council's development partner, awarded Sir Robert McAlpine the contract to build the 'game-changing' waterfront conference and events destination. 

The development, situated on the iconic NewcastleGateshead Quayside, includes a 12,500-capacity arena; 6,300m2 of conference and exhibition space; two hotels, bars, restaurants, car parking and extensive areas of public realm.

The new complex is set to open in 2023 with a full planning application expected to be submitted following the completion of the ground investigation work.
