Mark Isley started this petition to North Tyneside Council (NTC)

The installation of a new cycle lane from North Shields Fish Quay to Whitley Bay is an absolute abomination.  It was installed without warning or consultation with residents, is an eyesore to our beautiful coast, is causing severe traffic congestion and increased pollution as a result.

On all of my daily walks along the seafront, the use of this new cycle lane is extremely minimal, with many cyclists still choosing to use the wide and ample footpath.

Many business owners on the Fish Quay are expressing their negative views of this installation and the adverse impact it is having on their business, just at a time when they can ill afford more disruption on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The argument that it will eventually reduce traffic congestion along this stretch of road only goes to show the lack of thought that this project has had.  The congestion will simply move to neighboring roads, many of which are residential, as motorists attempt to find an alternative way to their destination.  In doing so they will put more residents at risk!

Please support me in signing this petition to get this abomination removed without further delay.
