Changes to road layouts in Gateshead Town Centre

We are making a number of changes to road layouts within Gateshead town centre. This is to: 

  • prepare for major changes associated with air quality which will significantly affect vehicle access to the Tyne Bridge
  • improve cycling and walking links between Gateshead and Newcastle and the Quays
  • limit the flows of through-traffic through Gateshead town centre
