Ruth Gertig started this petition to North Tyneside Council

Park Avenue is now the street down which all north and south bound traffic is finally diverted from the promenade. North bound traffic now passes a residential street, a children's playground, a church, a primary school and a busy shopping street before passing back onto the coastal route

Park avenue has been changed overnight from a quiet residential street to a busy road with heavy traffic flow

We are concerned about:

The health of children and residents due to the increase in air pollution 

The noise pollution residents, children and park users are now subject to

The safety of pedestrians and children playing/walking to school. Cars are passing at speeds well above 20mph along the roads

The local businesses, namely two hotels, who may lose custom

Our properties losing value due to the reduced desirability of living in the area

We wish for the council to reconsider the diversion affecting this area, we believe there must be a safer, more sensible way of diverting traffic to improve space for pedestrians and cyclists. Improving cyclist access should not come at the cost of direct negative impacts upon residents' health and welfare
