The weekend march for the Town Moor received front page coverage in the Newcastle Journal today (and you can read the article on ChronicleLive) following the overwhelming show of opposition by the local community to the council road building plans for Blue House Roundabout and Jesmond Dene Road.

This follows coverage on Sunday’s BBC Look North evening news programme on BBCOne with local news coverage on ITV Tyne Tees News as well.

Nick Moore, of the High West Jesmond Residents’ Association, said:

“We are delighted to see such a cross section of people come out and show support for this campaign.

“The council have no option but to scrap this plan, they need a complete rethink.”
