HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 c50W
71. Mr. Moody

asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made for the provision of a large roundabout and two bridges at White Mere Pool incorporating dual carriageway links both to the trunk road, A.184, and the new Tyne Tunnel approach road from Black Fell.

Mr. Hay

Preliminary drawings for the reconstruction of the junction at White Mere Pool and for dual carriageways on the trunk road A.184 from the eastern end of the Gateshead—Felling by-pass are being examined. Durham County Council, which is the highway authority for the road between White Mere Pool and the tunnel approach road, is at present reconstructing part of it so as to provide a suitable link with the tunnel. I understand that the council has it in mind to provide dual carriageways ultimately if the traffic warrants it.
