Bus links are being improved onto a business park.
Stagecoach North East has extended its 22 bus service, with new links from Wallsend to Silverlink shopping park and Cobalt business park.
They will offer a direct express service between Newcastle and Cobalt, plus two late buses on weekdays.
In addition, the 22 will serve Silverlink seven days a week, with buses every ten minutes Monday to Saturday during the day, and every 20 minutes during evenings and Sundays, running to 11pm.
Lynn Cramman, business development and transport manager at Cobalt Park, said: “We are delighted Stagecoach have decided to come onto the park with their 22 service.
“Our increasing workforce and bus patronage has brought this new service about, meaning staff can now connect to Newcastle as well as into Northumberland, Gateshead and South Tyneside.”
