Passing over the level crossing at Callerton Parkway Metro station
The C106 is a short rural road in the far north-west of the Newcastle upon Tyne council area. It begins near Newcastle Airport at a roundabout on the B6918 (former A696) and almost immediately crosses a level crossing on the Tyne and Wear Metro, near to Callerton Parkway Station. It then passes over the modern route of the A696, interchanging with it via a dumbbell interchange. The C106 continues in a generally south-westerly direction, having a very rural feel as it passes through open countryside. After approximately a mile it passes through the small village of Black Callerton, then continues in the same vein until it ends on the B6324 at Callerton Lane End.
