A1058 Coast Road


North Tyneside Council and its partners invested £7.2 million in improving road safety and addressing congestion issues on the A1058 Coast Road.

The works were delivered in three phases. During the first two phases, the team replaced the Billy Mill roundabout with traffic lights and improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. Two lanes eastbound were also introduced along Beach Road, as well as a new shared footpath/cycle way.

In the third and final phase, Norham Road Bridge was replaced with a new four-lane structure and traffic lights were installed at both slip road junctions.
