A1148 West Monkseaton - Whitley Bay
The eastern end of the A1148

The A1148 is a short link road in the Whitley Bay area of North Tyneside. The road is relatively new, built in the last quarter of the 20th century to serve the town's new estates.

The road starts at a roundabout in West Monkseaton on the A192. It now heads vaguely northeastwards along Monkseaton Drive, a wide S2 road which was clearly meant to be dual - only the westbound carriageway was built.

The road passes a couple of roundabouts and a school playing field before finally becoming lined with houses. The road is no longer obviously unbuilt D2 - but could just about be dual with imagination as it does have verges and wide pavements. After another roundabout the sea becomes visible ahead as the road follows a last dead-straight section to end at a tiny roundabout on the A193 coast road to the north of Whitley Bay town centre.
