A TRAFFIC trial will start in Monkseaton next week to see if school vehicles can be managed more safely.

An experimental order, made by North Tyneside Council under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, comes into force on Monday.

The order, which could become permanent if it proves viable, will stop all vehicles from entering the south east side of the Seatonville Road service road from Burnt House Road.

It will also ban vehicles, except for access, between 8am and 10am and 3pm and 4.30pm, from entering the service road from the A192 Seatonville Road 30 metres south of the junction with Ashtree Gardens.

Part of a road safety initiative, the proposal will be introduced on an experimental basis for up to 18 months to assess the impact of diverted traffic on neighbouring roads, while the council considers whether to make the changes permanent.

A consultation exercise will take place should the council decide to continue the restrictions indefinitely.

Details of the order can be viewed at the council’s Quadrant headquarters at The Silverlink North, Cobalt Business Park.

, NE27 0BY Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm.

A consultation exercise will take place should the council decide to continue the restrictions indefinitely.
