Near the east end of Whickham Highway, and not far from the entrance of the carpark for Watergate Park, there is a missing bus stop. The next bus stops are quite far away in all three directions, bearing in mind some buses coming from the west go down Malvern Gardens and don't stop until they get to the Scafell Gardens junction. All the nearest or 'next' bus stops (including Lobley Hill (Top) and Whickham Highway (Top of Knightside Gardens) get quite busy, causing people to stand close to each other, which will defeat social distancing (as does dis-boarding in larger numbers). There is a considerable unserved market stretching quite a long way down Woodburn Gardens and down the Tanfield Railway path. Where this crosses Whickham Highway might be a good place to put the east or westbound missing bus-stops.
