Worried residents have appealed to Labour for help to tackle the growing traffic problems in Dunkirk.
The relocation of the College, construction of the fire station and the new performing arts centre as well as housing development has all caused a big increase in traffic and parking.
Now many residents have asked the local Labour team for support to improve safety for pedestrians, particularly at the start and end of the school day.
Councillors Lizzie Shenton and Rob Wallace have promised to investigate residents’ concerns to see what further measures the Borough Council can take to help alleviate the situation.
Newcastle’s MP Paul Farrelly has also written to the County Council asking whether urgent steps can be taken to improve safety at the junction of Dunkirk & Knutton Lane.
