  • Thank you for contacting Highways England regarding a damaged fence.

    We maintain that as this is an all purpose trunk road all fences are the responsibility of the adjacent landowner. In this case the responsibility for this issue, on this road, is that of Gateshead Council.

    I'm sorry to hear that they are denying it is their responsibility.

    Can i please ask you to contact us at and quote the reference 22020078 and include any contact you have had from Gateshead council where they have denied it is their responsibility and we will look into it further.

    Thank you,

    Highways England
