Changes to road layouts in Gateshead Town Centre

We have decided to retain the changes we made to road layouts within the town centre. This is to: 

  • reduce through traffic and the feeling of separation between the town centre and the quays / bridges area
  • improve cycling and walking links between Gateshead, Newcastle and the Quays
  • prepare for the introduction of a Clean Air Zone
  • reduce delays to buses accessing the Tyne Bridge
