Once a cyclist has crossed the A1 from Swalwell using Hollinside Road, the route to the yellow and blue malls of Metro Centre, and beyond towards central Gateshead is difficult to work out and negotiate through MC's car parks and satellite developments, with sharp turns and narrow paths, and mixing with pedestrians and traffic. As a minimum solution, some bike lane widening and clearer signing is needed. Note the best MC bike parking is located just south of the transport interchange (blue mall), and access needs to be improved. There are unnecessary kerbs, and no clear demarcations between bike and bus movement areas and lanes.
