28/04/2005 Amendments to Guide Notes
The sections of NCN 14 within Gateshead and NCN 72 are now desribed on the sister websites,
Cycle-Gateshead and
Hadrian's Cycleway
All cross boundary links will take you to the relevant website which will open in a new window.
This is to avoid duplication on the three websites and save me a lot of hassle keeping them up dated!!

12/11/2004 New Detour at Willington Quay - North Tyneside
A short section of off road path between Western Road and Armstrong Ave, will be shut for 2 to 3 months to allow construction of a large retaining wall - this detour is on road and detour signs have been erected.
Note this section of road can be busy.

The linking ramp from the existing railpath connecting to Shelly Road is now complete - allowing the Newburn Riverside Trail to be used. Signs have yet to be installed.

21/4/2004 Newcastle - Scotswood Road
Work has commenced to dual Scotswood Road
- this will affect the cycle route between the end of the railway path up to the traffic lights at William Armstrong Drive.
Be prepared to use the road if shared use footpaths are disrupted - eventually there will be a Toucan crossing near the Paradise Roundabout and an off-road cycle path to the south side of the new road.

16/8/2004 North Tyneside
The cycleway between Western Road (C2C mile 132.0) and Howdon Lane (C2C mile 132.5) has been changed due to a new housing development.
This is partly off road then along Armstrong Road, a quite back street to rejoin existing route at the
Howdon Lane Millennium Milepost.
