Roads are closing across six towns in North Tyneside with all the impact set to be short term thanks to what the council calls rolling closures. These are moveable, quick blocks for small events such as remembrance parades.

A small section of roads will be closed off to cars in Tynemouth with Huntingdon Place and Manor Road between Huntingdon Place and the junction with Percy Park Road being made available to parades from 10:15am until 11:35am.

Manor Road will continue to be closed throughout the service which is set to run from 11:35am until 12 noon.

Up the road in Whitley Bay, road closures will be in place from 2:15. The route will follow along Victoria Terrace, Whitley Road, Park Avenue, Marine Avenue and Watts Slope with cars being given access again from 3:00pm.
