Improvements to Heaton Road underway

Work has started on Heaton Road to improve travel for cyclists and pedestrians.

New cycle lanes are being created between Meldon Terrace and Cardigan Terrace. The crossing point at Meldon Terrace will be improved and the roundabout at Heaton Park View will be replaced with traffic lights.

Work started last week and is expected to continue until June 2017.

Drivers are asked to take extra care during the works as the road layout is likely to change regularly as work progresses.

The work is funded by the Cycle City Ambition Fund and is part of the Council's £60m Re-newcastle programme of investment.
