NEWCASTLE MOTORWAY RELIEVES CITY CENTRE CONGESTION

Details of the design and construction of Newcastle's Central Motorway east are given. Within its length of less than a mile there are five vehicle access points, eight pedestrian crossings by overbridges and subways, and two underground tunnels constructed in the contract in advance of the proposed rapid transit system. The motorway is partly in cutting and partly on two levels, one above the other. The motorway was completed on 12 August 1975. /TRRL/
