There are a number of changes we can make to pavements in Newcastle, to make them more accessible.
We can install dropped kerbs on the edge of the pavement. These are at appropriate crossing points to allow access for wheelchair users and those pushing prams or pushchairs to cross the road.
Apply for a dropped kerb
We will contact you to discuss whether it is possible.
Crossover or motor crossing
These allow vehicle access over the pavement onto a business or residential property. They are usually called crossovers, but can also be referred to as a motor crossing. There is a charge for this service. Planning permission may be necessary in some locations.
