Mountbatten Avenue, Hebburn School Safety Zone


In our ongoing efforts to reduce road traffic collisions and improve road safety, the Road Safety team are proposing to install road humps on Mountbatten Avenue, in addition to other improvements to Road Safety.

It is envisaged the road humps will help maintain low vehicle speeds and create a safer environment for highway users, particularly pedestrians travelling to and from St James’ RC Primary School. This proposed measure will assist with reinforcing the existing 20 zone speed restriction in force on Mountbatten Avenue. 

Additionally we are also proposing to improve an existing pedestrian crossing point and apply red surfacing and a ‘Ghost Island’ on Solway Road, at its junction with Finchale Road.
