Route outline (key)
B1311 Denton Road – Westgate Road
Whickham View

The B1311 is a largely residential road in the West End of Newcastle upon Tyne, running from the A191 Denton Road through Benwell to a junction with the A186 immediately west of the city centre.

The route starts at a small roundabout on the A191 near Denton Burn. From here it runs south-east and east as Whickham View, Benwell Lane, Adelaide Terrace (where it forms the main retail centre of Benwell) and Elswick Road.

Work in progress: More detailed route description to go here

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.

History

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.
