The Crossing of Railway Street in Dunston near Staithes Road and the area around it just isn’t good enough. It should at least be a zebra crossing rather than just an island in the middle of the A1114. The footpaths on either side aren’t wide enough to allow for bicycles, particularly for cyclists having to turn to make the crossing. To top it all, getting from Wellington Street or Ravensworth Road by bike is baffling, despite there being lots of open land and tarmac over that short distance. There’s no clear path or obvious route (even for pedestrians) and you find yourself going over kerbs. It’s an obvious route from many parts of Dunston to the riverside route and towards central Gateshead and Newcastle but has seemingly been given little thought.
