NORTH Tyneside Council is working for us on the roads.
It is so pleasant to drive on the new surface in Whitley Bay town centre and then up to Marden Bridge roundabout.
Also the coastal road though Cullercoats has been resurfaced.
The area forums, where residents nominate improvements to their neighbourhood and funds are allocated by the council, is the way forward and I feel that some of these road improvements have come through this source.
Further afield, the Shiremoor bypass, although closed for some days, has been given remedial treatment to the uneven surfaces and roundabout approaches.
It is hoped that this work will give a more robust surface and withstand adverse winter conditions.
