A187 Howdon Road/Prudhoe Street roundabout improvements

Scheme overview

North Tyneside Council has ambitious plans to improve and transform North Shields and the Fish Quay into an attractive, family-friendly place to live, work and visit. 

As part of these ambitions, the A187 Howdon Road/Prudhoe Street five-arm junction was redesigned to make it easier and safer for highway users to access the town centre.

Works included: 

  • Installing a new circular central island to help the roundabout function more effectively.
  • Relocating crossing points on the Prudhoe Terrace and Prudhoe Street arms of the roundabout to better accommodate pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Installing a new zebra crossing on the Waterville Road arm of the roundabout.
  • Constructing a new splitter island with pedestrian crossing on the Trinity Terrace arm of the roundabout.
  • Extending the pedestrian guardrail on the Prudhoe Terrace arm.
  • Installing new gullies in the centre of the roundabout to improve drainage and help alleviate flooding in this area.
  • Resurfacing the roundabout and its arms.

The work got under way November 2022 and completed at the beginning of 2023.
