The part was made up of Cllr Henri Murison and Harvey Emms from Newcastle City Council, by liveable cities experts: Richard Smith of Action Streets and Neil Murphy of Beyond Green and a number of campaign members. Starting at Swan House roundabout we observed the aggressive multilane gyratory and its inadequate provision for walking and cycle alongside the fast moving traffic.

We’d have liked to attend. The time was prohibitive.
Brighton Grove hearing of objections. Campaign has submitted their part-objection on numerous occasions and attended many meetings. We’ll keep an eye on the decisions taken by the council on this longstanding problem.
