Liberal Democrats in Dunston and Teams, Gateshead have launched a petition to Go Ahead North East bus company, calling on them to bring back services directly between Dunston village centre and northern Dunston.
The petition was launched after some of the businesses in The Crescent area contacted Councillor Peter Maughan.
“People running businesses in the area told me that many of their customers are having difficulty getting to the village centre because of the lack of a direct route,” said Peter.
“I therefore produced the petition and have left copies with a number of businesses in the area. We will hand the petition over to the company shortly.”
