McMullen Road roundabout and Salters Lane cycle route
This scheme will provide 2 lanes on each of the roads at the roundabout (except the access into the retail park) and two lanes round the roundabout, helping more vehicles to use the roundabout every hour. The design also includes a new footpath and cycle path to link to the existing paths in Tommy Crooks Park.
The initial work to relocate utility services – Openreach, Northern Powergrid, Virgin Media and Northumbrian Water started in March 2018. The main works will start in July 2018 and are programmed to finish by March 2019.
