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
