One way system to begin 15 December
The new one-way system at the harbour will begin on Monday 15 December. Traffic will be restricted to an easterly direction along Queen St, Coquet St and Leazes St.
Lawson St and George St will also be included in the one way system, with access now from Coquet St, exiting at Bridge St.
This is a temporary scheme for 12 months to see if it will ease congestion around the harbour area
