Taking away the parking areas along by the main shopping area in Low Fell restricts those who are unable to walk from the Car Parks due to reduced mobility. This will affect the local business in an area where the pavement are never overcro ... [more]

There should be a centre island in the road or a toucan crossing to facilitate safe passage for pedestrians crossing to reach the bus stop. The road is wide enough to accommodate this and it is a dangerous place for children to cross as the ... [more]

A proper light controlled crossing should be installed here. At the moment you have to dodge cars that are accelerating away from the roundabout and cars that have totally ignored the 30 limit on the approach to the roundabout. Very dangero ... [more]

The council should put a off road cycle path along the whole of the A695 Ryton/Crawcrook Bypass. There is room next to the road to make this a safe off road cycle route.

Steps are needed down from the pavement on the east side of Hollinside Road, near the slip road for the A1, down to St Michael's Way. People already scramble down the steep bank to avoid a long detour to the north when walking from Swalwell ... [more]

Traffic calming and a pedestrian crossing needed part way up. Cars race up the bank here.

Trim the hedges! West side of Fellside Road between the pelican crossings at the Fellsider and Burnthouse Lane could be widened by about 50% if the hedges were trimmed, and that's only one example! Other examples abound, just look for them.

This is narrow and a well used pavement. Traffic is far too fast and overhanging trees make it difficult to walk along, particularly with children.

The pavement is far too narrow here and used largely by families going to the park. Wider pavements would make it much safer for families with children.

Footpaths here are either too narrow, or too wide which encourages parking on the pavement. Wider pavements and designated parking (if needed) would improve safety.

Pavement is too narrow and hemmed in with barriers due to heavy traffic - makes physical distancing impossible Wider pavements would make walking/ cycling to school safer and more pleasant

Overhanging bushes blocking pavement

Radical proposal: Build a new wider pedestrian/cycle path cantilevered from the side of the bridge, Use screening to separate from the traffic (noise, pollution and spray).

Lots of delivery drivers (mostly for Dominos) parking on the pavement opposite. Need to enforce no parking as it makes it harder to walk past

Narrow pavements with cars parked both sides, on a heavily trafficked through route between Bensham/Durham Road and Split Crow Road/Old Durham Road - frequent buses too. At least one side should not have parking, and pavements widened, to i ... [more]

Crawcrook Main Street could be improved by stopping cars and vans (not deliveries) from parking on the pavements and double yellow lines. When half a dozen are parked alongside the shops it is very hard to see what traffic is coming in the ... [more]

A shared use footpath /cycleway needs to be made. Gateshead Council have just installed a new crash barrier, big electronic traffic sign AND a metal box all where cyclists and pedestrians need space off the busy main road. This has reduce ... [more]

More space is needed for pedestrians over the Blaydon Burn bridge. It is dangerous when pedestrians have to squeeze between the bridge and the busy A695 road.

Complete the pavement from Blaydon roundabout to Path Head roundabout. There are sections which have have tarmac paths and then the path just stops for about 300 metres before another section of tarmac footpath.

Widened pavement to Enable safe social distancing for school children and carers

Wider pavement to Enable safe social distancing for school children and their carers

How do you directly access the riverside path (Centrelink/NCN 14) from the roundabout?

Cycle path here at lower level is in extremely bad state of repair forcing cyclists onto the footpath and road. Please repair

The pavement is very narrow. The road is also narrow with 2 blind corners and a summit so it is dangerous to step onto the road, or cycle uphill. At the very least please cut back the nettles immediately as there is currently less than 2 fe ... [more]

Hedge overhanging pavement making it difficult to social distance without walking on the road - needs cutting back

Narrow footway with pedestrian barrier inhibiting safe passing

Huge bell-mouthed entrance on to Valley Drive for the side streets (both Ashtrees & Limetrees Gardens) encouraging high speed turns. Narrowing these entrances would give space for additional planters and trees and make the place feel more ... [more]

The worst roundabout/junction in Gateshead. No safe crossings at junction for pedestrians or cyclists. Junction should be converted to a simple 4 way traffic junction with pedestrian/cycle crossings on each leg.

Zebra crossing converted to a toucan crossing

Zebra converted to a toucan crossing

Signals should be made to a Toucan

The pavement/cycleway is too narrow

The crossing facilities need improving for cyclists and pedestrians. Poles and lights are falling apart. Requires to be simplified and connected with the other upgraded signals. Timings are off causing delays for all road users.

A signalised crossing is required at this junction.

No traffic signal crossing facilities. Speeds are every high 40-60 MPH and risking life to cross the road and getting stuck in the middle island.

Crossing facilties are located in the wrong place. The roundabout needs to be removed, simplified into a normal 4 way junction with simple pedestrian crossings on all sides to access Sage, Quays, College, Business park etc.

There is no crossing facilities for pedestrians coming up from Riverside Park. Junction is also over-complicated and needs to be simplified. Timings are way off causing long delays for every mode.

There's no provision to cross the road by pedestrians or cyclists to access Gateshead Quays.

Small path in a 30 mph zone insufficient room to walk socially distant without walking into traffic from Whickham stables to top of Dunstonbank

No pathway after Elm Crescent, makes getting to railway path dangerous

Section of shared use bike path here is in abysmal condition and far too narrow, and the traffic lights crossing does not have a pedestrian / cycle / horse button or indicator

This could be a very good route for cycling up the hill away from traffic, but the short path from the bridge to the road is terrible and unpaved. Also has really obstructive barriers / gates on it.

Very narrow path for pedestrians & nothing to cater for cycling

Path width significantly reduced here by bus stop and passengers waiting for the bus. Especially bad if pushchairs are waiting for the bus.

Footpath would be wide, if the Council would maintain it by cutting back the weeds and other objects that have narrowed it to less than 2 meters in places. Between the A1 road bridge and Scotswood Bridge.

Ridiculous amounts of footway parking - requires better enforcement

Grim pedestrian environment with huge amounts of parking on footway and oddly placed new cycle stands. Could seek some footway widening

Narrow pavement at bottom of The Grove. Often have to take turns to let others up it. Especially busy when doctors surgery is open

Path behind the roadside fence is very narrow

The pavement by Express Stitch is very narrow so cycling up towards Whitehall Road keeping to the left of the road means you almost touch pedestrians walking in the other direction.

The path is narrow with over growing vegetation. Added to this the cars do not obey the speed limit, which adds to the level of danger cycling up from the Derwent Walk up Clockburn Lonnen.

The road between Winlaton and Barlow is extremely dangerous with drivers speeding and overtaking. There are so many pedestrians using this road so it would be fantastic if a pavement could be added. The current pavement stops just after the ... [more]

Can’t see round corner and cyclists do not stop for pedestrians and motorists and is very busy with the chip shop park and derwent walk entrance/exit past Gardner and wake to park

Cycling and pedestrians in direct competition to use the path/bus stop cycle way and lots of overgrown trees bushes

This is an extremely narrow shared footpath/ cycleway outside shops. It is barely wide enough for a walkway, let alone a shared use one that forces people to cycle within 3 ft of the shop doorways. Either the pavement needs to be widened or ... [more]

Pedestrians and cyclists have no assistance in crossing the dual lane A1 Slip road here. This is a barrier and severance issue between Birtley and Gateshead. The roundabout sees high traffic speeds and volumes.

Very narrow footways and people must walk in the road frequently to pass, even without social distancing recommendations.

Pavement narrow outside shops which makes socially distanced queuing tricky. Anti-social parking makes it hard to make use of the road to pass in this congested corner.

Street furniture (poles etc) narrow the footway here creating a point of conflict for pedestrians and cyclists accessing the bridge.

Due to the low bridges, horse-riders need to dismount. I noticed that at the similar sign on the other side of the low bridges that there was a concrete block to assist riders dismounting. But on this side it is too overgrown to get to.

Overgrown steps down to the Bowes Railway Path, signed as a pedestrian access. Anyone not wishing to use this needs to cross the main road for the ramp.
