About this Map

  • The main map shows the designated road freight network for Tyne and Wear. It is expected that drivers will use this network to access freight destinations within Tyne and Wear, wherever possible.
  • The map also includes a series of more detailed inset maps because some of the key destinations lie away from the designated road freight network. Preferred routes are also identified to these destinations.
  • Bridge height and weight restrictions are shown for the identified freight network and for access roads around key destinations. It should be noted that there are many restrictions on other parts of the road network that are not represented.
  • The list of freight origins and destinations is not exhaustive. It focuses on industrial estates, employment parks and retail parks where multiple users will be involved. We welcome feedback from users of this map regarding additional locations which should be shown in subsequent editions.
