Can anyone shed light on works?

Does anyone have any information regarding the works to commence this summer until spring 2015 to replace the roundabouts at Four Lane Ends and Goathland Avenue, Benton, with traffic lights?

These lights will have to operate 24/7 after the major changes that will be made to the junction.

Also the construction of another roundabout on the Spine Road for a new housing estate at West Moor.

I have only found out about this from reading the North Tyneside Summer 2014 magazine.

I was amused to also read that ‘disruption will be kept to a minimum’.

Given the mess made of the traffic lights installed on Earsdon Road, one can just imagine the chaos that awaits.
