Hawks Road Closures
Hawks Road Partial Closures 6 June to 23 October 2022
As part of the ongoing regeneration works to the Gateshead Quayside including the construction of The new Sage Arena, Conference and Exhibition Centre, located between Sage Gateshead and Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts, several partial closures of Hawks Road are planned from 06 June to approximately 23 October 2022, to allow for essential highways work.
All businesses in the area are open as usual.
The car parks at Riga, Northern Design Centre, Proto, Sage Gateshead and Garden Street will remain open.
Traffic lights at the junction of Hawks Road to the A167.
We've received queries on the traffic lights at the junction of Hawks Road to the A167. These lights are working correctly in coordination with other lights within Gateshead and Newcastle. By changing the timing of the lights this would cause an impact on congestion in other areas of the region; affecting over 70,000 commentators on the A167 and causing congestion into Newcastle and onto the Felling Bypass.
For further information and the full detail of the closure and diversion more information can be found on the Roadworks webpage.
