The B1311 ends where it meets the A186 Westgate Road at the Big Lamp junction (so-called because a large, ornate lamp standard once stood in the fork between the two roads).
An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
The route's original (1922) number was B6328, and before the development of new housing in the Whickham View area in the 1930s it began more than a mile further east than it does today: at the junction with Atkinson Road / Condercum Road (then the B6327; today the B1305.
The B1311 formerly continued a short way beyond its present terminus, crossing the A186 Westgate Road and continuing along Corporation Street, through the site of the former Tyne Brewery to end at a junction with the A189 St James' Boulevard.
