Beeswing Ladies Day, Newcastle Racecourse 2014



The Collingwood Insurance Beeswing Ladies Day opens again on Saturday the 26th of July and is named after the 19th century British Thoroughbred racehorse from the North of England called Beeswing.

Beeswing (1833–1854) was a 19th-century British Thoroughbred racehorse from the North of England. In her day, Beeswing was hailed as the greatest mare in Britain and one of the greatest of all time.

At the age of nine, Beeswing competed in her last racing season, and despite her advanced age, it proved to be her most glorious. Another victory in the Newcastle Cup was nicely sandwiched between two of the finest performances of her tremendous career. 

Her turf farewell came at Doncaster, the place where she always ran her best. The Doncaster Cup was her swan song, and against an old rival, Charles XII, she turned in a thoroughly dominating performance.

Beeswing took the lead from the beginning and never looked back. She cruised the over two mile distance like it was no work at all, and won by six lengths.

This is one of the most popular race days of the year, with ladies and gentlemen going all out to impress. Dont miss out on the highlight of the social calendar in Newcastle - definitely the place to be seen.

Also dont forget there is also a a competition for best dressed ladies with a whole range of prizes to be won.

Major works in Sunderland and South Tyneside in 2014

Works on seven major schemes to help traffic flows are set to start in 2014 in Sunderland and South Tyneside.

The works will lay the ground for further developments following confirmation of the
Sunderland City Deal in Partnership with South Tyneside.

More than £9m has been earmarked for the infrastructure schemes to help traffic entering and exiting the A19 corridor and support economic growth.

The improvements will assist with:

  • Reducing traffic congestion and improving journey times on key routes

  • Opening up access to key employment sites within the North East Low Carbon Enterprise Zone and the Nissan plant

  • The development of a 100 hectare International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) to the north and west of the Nissan plant as part of the recently announced Sunderland and South Tyneside City Deal.

Other planned works include improvements to Sunderland's pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

Funding has been made available from Central Government with £5m from the Regional Growth Fund, £4.17m from the Local Pinch Point Fund, plus contributions from Sunderland City Council (£500,000).

The 2014 schemes include:

(1) A19/A690
Updated traffic signalling at the A19 junction with the A690 Durham Road - works carried out by Sunderland City Council

(2) A19/A183
Updated traffic signalling the A19 junction with the A183 Chester Road - works carried out by Sunderland City Council

(3) A19/A1231
The Highways Agency is planning works to the A19/A1231 junctions. These comprise:

Updated traffic signalling
• Widening the eastbound A1231 approach to the A19 to three lanes

(4) A19/A1290
Conversion of existing A19 junction with the A1290 to traffic signal control to improve the main north-south access route to Nissan and reduce existing queues of traffic on the A19 – works carried out by South Tyneside Council

(5) A1290/Nissan Access
Updated traffic signalling at the A1290 junction with Washington Road, improving staff and visitor access to the Nissan car manufacturing plant – works carried out by Sunderland City Council

This includes off carriageway cycleways alongside the A1290, linking to Sulgrave Road roundabout and Albany Park, and Pattinson Road – works carried out by Sunderland City Council.

Works on the first phase of the A1290 cycleways have already begun.

A1 Improvements scheme - Metrocentre to Coal House Roundabout


The Highways Agency is making improvements to the A1 around Gateshead with a target start of works date of summer 2014. The scheme is planned to be open to traffic by spring 2016.

This scheme was announced as an extension to the A1 Lobley Hill to Dunston scheme in April 2014. The scheme will now extend south from Lobley Hill junction to Coal House junction and north from Dunston junction to the Metro Centre junction. 

The improvements consist of upgrading the A1 from two to three lanes in each direction between Coal House and Metro Centre along with the introduction of new parallel link roads between Lobley Hill and the A184 Gateshead Quays junctions.

Public exhibitions have been held to present the proposals for the scheme and the results from the environmental assessment. A third exhibition is now planned prior to the start of works.

The latest exhibition will set out our construction plans with members of the team on hand to discuss some of the more detailed works information. This will include cross sections, detailed drawings and a computer simulation showing how the completed scheme will look from a driver’s perspective.

The scheme will be constructed within the existing highways boundary and no additional land will be required. It will relieve congestion on this section of the A1 Western Bypass, and therefore improve journey time reliability.


Exhibition Dates, Times & Contact info

Highways Agency representatives will be holding exhibitions in the area to give an opportunity to find out more about the proposed scheme, & answer any questions the public has.
These will be held

Friday 18th July 10:30am-8pm, at Dunston Activity Centre, Ellison Rd, Gateshead, NE11 9SS
as well as a seperate session the day after on

Saturday 19th July 10am-4pm, at Lobley Hill Primary School, Rothbury Gardens, Lobley Hill, Gateshead, NE11 0AT.

For further information regarding these works please contact Lynne Biddles at Highways Agency, Lateral, 8 City Walk, Leeds, LS119AT. Alternatively, call the Highways Agency Information Line on 0300 123 5000, or email a1coalhousetometrocentre@highways.gsi.gov.uk

Lobley Hill Road - Kingsway Roundabout Team Valley Trading Estate

Delays are to be expected as work begins on improvements at a key junction linking the A1 Western Bypass to the Team Valley Trading Estate and Gateshead. 

The £3.4m improvement scheme at the Maingate - Kingsway Roundabout on Lobley Hill Road is due to begin on January the 18th 2014. Lane closures will be in place for significant periods during the 30 week project and this is likely to significantly add to journey times, particularly during peak times.

The scheme is expected to ease congestion and improve public transport links.The Lobley Hill Road improvement programme is seen as the first part of linked works, which will also see major changes on the A1 Western Bypass relieving the third most congested "A" road in the country.

The improvements will include the introduction of traffic Signals on the roundabout, together with the creation of a Northbound bus and cycle lane on Kingsway itself and a Westbound bus lane between the roundabout and the A1 junction. In order to accommodate the new bus lane, the road will be widened rather than removing an existing lane used by all traffic.

Many bus journeys through the Kingsway roundabout at peak times currently face several minutes of delays due to congestion in the area. This is expected to be dramatically reduced.

The project is due for completion by July 2014 and will be followed almost immediately by the main A1 improvement works. During the works motorists are being warned that delays are inevitable with lane restrictions in place, to allow the widening and improvements.

  • A1056-A189 Sandy Lane / Killingworth Way Roundabout - Widening & installing traffic signals on the existing roundabout
  • Eastern side of A188 Benton Lane / Goathland Avenue junction to Quorum Business Park - Improved off-road pedestrian and cycle links

This project is being managed and delivered by Capita, North Tyneside Council's technical services partner.

Construction is due to start this summer. The works will cause some disruption, however every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

All works will be carried outside of peak times, between 9.30 and 15:00. Some limited night time working will be required. No approaches will be closed, most will be reduced to a single lane. No diversions are required for the works.

Open Data

The Tyne & Wear UTMC officially launched it's Open Data Service at the Integrated Transport and Weather Information Pilot (ITWIP) event at Sunderland Software City on Friday 28th February 2014.

The key principle of open data is to increase transparency and the sharing of information we hold with the wider community.

Our service provides third party developers with access to a number of datasets sourced from the Tyne and Wear Urban Traffic Management Control (UTMC) system. Developers are then able to build useful applications using the data we have now made freely available.

Data that has been released includes travel and transport related datasets through the provision of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The initial datasets made public include:

  • Air quality data
  • Car Parks
  • CCTV
  • Journey Times
  • SCOOT
  • Traffic – Accident
  • Traffic – Event
  • Traffic – Incident
  • Traffic – Roadwork
  • Weather station data
