Tackling congestion

Newcastle is growing with over 21,000 new homes planned by 2030, creating 14,000 new jobs and bringing in new families and communities to our city.

We need to have the right infrastructure in place to help cope with the additional demand this will have our network which is why we’re investing in key junctions across the city.

We’re also investing in our infrastructure to provide practical alternatives to car journeys with better walking, cycling and public transport provision.

Some journeys will always need to be done by car but for other times, think about using public transport.

Congestion also slows down journeys which is why we are prioritising public transport through key junctions.

The Department for Transport say every full bus can take up to 75 cars off the road.
