  • Thank you for your email of 5 June 2023 about the A1231. We appreciate the time you've taken to contact us about the issues on this road.

    We've checked and can confirm the traffic signals, road surface, lines, studs, footpaths and lighting are the responsibility of Gateshead Council and they can be contacted via article/ 312/ Parking-roads-and-transport.

    The bridge structure itself including parapets is the responsibility of National Highways. The parapets are of a sufficient height to meet the standard to which they were constructed. However, we're currently undergoing a series of parapet assessments on bridges across the network and this bridge will be included. Once the assessment on this structure is completed, we will review and act on any concerns in line with our published standards.

    Thank you again for contacting us. If there is anything we can help you with, please email or telephone our Contact Centre. They’re available 24 hours a day by phone: 0300 123 5000 or by email Alternatively, please visit the National Highways website at
