Newcastle Bridges Low Traffic Measures 2021 - This consultation has now ended

We have identified a number of small bridges across the city, which are not key routes, but are being used by higher levels of traffic than is appropriate. By closing these bridges to traffic, we can re-allocate them for people on foot and bikes, making it safer and easier for people to get around their local area, and reduce levels of unnecessary traffic using local roads. T
he bridges chosen are in locations where residents and other key groups have expressed safety concerns for people walking and cycling over the bridges. These include: 

  • Salters Bridge, Parklands 
  • Castle Farm Bridge, Dene and South Gosforth 
  • Haldane Bridge, South Jesmond 
  • Argyle Street, Ouseburn 
  • Stoneyhurst Bridge, Dene and South Gosforth
