Wallsend is a historic town in the borough of North Tyneside on the banks of the river Tyne built at the North Eastern end of Emperor Hadrian’s Roman Wall.
Progress in the ongoing redevelopment of Wallsend is continuing with the proposed redevelopment of the Wallsend shopping precinct in the town centre which includes the demolition of Hedley court as well as the restoration and building work now being carried out at Richardson Dees Park, which will be followed by a massive amount of work to be carried out on the Wallsend Hall Grounds.
This follows the fairly recent demolition and rebuilding of Burn Closes Bridge, which links the communities of Holy Cross, Rosehill & Howdon to Wallsend town centre, along with the multi-million pound Wallsend swimming pool.
The ongoing regeneration of Battle Hill shopping precinct as well as the building of a second Tyne tunnel and the refurbishment of the Tyne pedestrian tunnel in Willington Quay, Wallsend are visible signs of the significant amount of money being spent on the further development of the town.
Though this progress seems slow to some Wallsender’s, a vast amount of new money has already being earmarked to be spent on the town and its suburbs.
The towns historic name Segedunum which translates to “strong fort” is visible on many of the town’s various road signs and the plans for the future will hopefully mean the Wallsend communities continue to stabilise & thrive well into the future.
