A sign at a key regeneration project has been spruced up.

Work is currently being undertaken to turn the former Swans shipyard, into a manufacturing park.

It now looks as good as new and we hope it will be appreciated by the many people who use this waggonway route.

And as part of that work, staff at Capita noticed a nearby information sign on a waggonway track beneath a bridge had been vandalised.

Backworth-based DJ Installations Ltd gave the sign a makeover, and it is now back in place looking as good as new.

Graeme Cochrane, Capita senior project manager, said: “As our team worked on Benton Way, they noticed that the nearby sign on the waggonway had certainly seen better days.

“It now looks as good as new and we hope it will be appreciated by the many people who use this waggonway route.”

Mark Jones, of DJ Installations, said: “We were delighted to help out with this project.

“As we’re a company that’s based in North Tyneside, we know how popular the waggonways are with residents and visitors.

“It was really satisfying to get this information sign back to its best.”
