The A1300 forms the South Shields bypass, running to the south of the town centre as far as the coast.

Route

John Reid Road

The road starts at a roundabout on the A194 just to the east of its junction with the A19. The A1300 heads east along a semi-urban D2. Houses are visible to both sides of the road, although they are not accessible from the A1300; however, there are frequent sets of traffic lights and roundabouts which provide access to the housing estates.

After crossing a freight-only railway line the road turns slightly northerly. The B1298 is crossed at a roundabout, after which the road runs between the South Tyneside District Hospital and Temple Memorial Park to a further roundabout on the A1018.

The road now narrows to S2 and becomes far more urban. It crosses the now-unclassified former A19 at the next roundabout and continues in the same direction through the suburbs along what becomes an attractive tree-lined avenue. Although the road is lined with houses they are set back somewhat. Presently the road runs over a rise and the sea becomes visible ahead. Another roundabout leads to a final stretch of road which ends at a final roundabout on the A183 Coast Road above Marsden Bay.

History

A1300 took over the route of the former B1300. The OS Quarter inch maps show that this took place between the March 1972 and November 1973 editions. From the July 1972 OS Route Planning Map it looks to have taken place in 1972.

John Reid Road

The 2.5 mile dual carriageway link road from Leam Lane (A194) to King George Road (then A19, later A1018) was fully opened on 14 April 1965. The section east of Boldon Lane had opened two months previous. The official opening was to be on 27 April 1965. Cost was £500,000.
