Panton Street has an experimental traffic order changing this section to one-way except cycles.

Two-way cycling is now permitted in Panton Street, but the right-turn from Lensfield Road is not facilitated by any gap in the hashing. (Note: need to double-check whether there is any sign prohibiting a right-turn here.)

Panton Street two-way for cycling at last (experimental order).

  • Icon 161090 Stop parking on pavements as this is narrowing pavements and causing vulnerable pedestrians having to share narrow road space with fast moving vehicles irrespective of ineffective speed humps!!
  • Icon 161089 Avenue Road NE84JH is a busy avenue on route to Saltwell Park, the Leisure Center, Library and soon to be Shipcote School, vehicles constantly park on the pavements restricting pedestrians access and making them use the road to make progress! This especially affects wheelchair users and young mothers and fathers with pushchairs along with elderly pedestrians using walking aids. The recent speed humps placed in Avenue Road are really ineffective and do not slow traffic, it would have been more effective to have duplicated existing speed humps that are higher and are more effective! Avenue Road is an accident waiting to happen as it is used as a rat run avoiding the busier Durham Road especially when the new school opens!
  • Icon 161088 More signs are needed to encourage dog walkers to 'scoop the poop' of their dogs into a dog wste bag, or use "stick to flick" to get rid of dog faeces into the undergrowth either side of paths like Woodhouses Lane. I've put the marker near this access point off Parkdale Rise, as there is an irresponsible owner of a large dog who lives near here, and he lets it defecate in the middle of the nice newly surfaced path. His excuse is that horses and ponies do their business on it, but heโ€™s ignoring the fact that it's a bridleway, and that the faeces of a carnivore is toxic and dangerous compared to a herbivore. There are many more like him. So, all over Gateshead, where there are entrances to rural paths, and on those rights of way themselves, it would greatly help if the council put up signs warning dog-walkers of their obligations.
  • Icon 161087 Curve in path affects sightlines. Lampposts in dangerous places
  • Icon 161086 Cycling conflicts with pedestrians, driveways to flats
  • Icon 161085 Open this walk way its currently closed. Close the cycle path along the Eastern rd. Ban cycles on the Eastern rd . Build path along side sea wall. Its simple
  • Icon 161083 This section of cycleway is unlit, in stark contrast to the rest of the route. May be some low level lighting (rather than full on street lights) would be sufficient for safety.
  • Icon 161082 Prioritise cycle lane here, cycle lane is very narrow and faded. Remove 1 car lane to be replaced with better cycle lane. (Modify light changes for turn right and ahead).
  • Icon 161081 Remove car parking spaces outside rowlands for green cycle lane so cyclists are passed by with adequate room.
  • Icon 161080 This road remove right turn into st Mary's, have dedicated cycle route - make right turn as single file traffic (modify traffic signals) At traffic lights green cycle square in front of pedestrian crossing. Cycle path on pavement shouldn't indicate cyclists can't go on the road because there's a shared pavement - which should be pedestrian only.
