Urgent road and pedestrian crossing improvements are needed if a new Greggs and Starbucks on Pennywell Industrial Estate in Sunderland are approved, according to local councillors for the area.
Plans have been submitted for a drive through Greggs bakery and a drive through Starbucks coffee shop on the former Dewhurst site on Pennywell Industrial Estate, next to the existing ALDI supermarket, KFC and Wickes store.
A Sunderland councillor is expecting a huge backlash from bus passengers as Sunderland Labour's plans for changing roads through the city centre will mean that thousands of people who get off the bus at Vine Place/TK Maxx won't be able to any longer.
Propposals being put forward by Sunderland Council will mean buses can only travel one-way (westbound from the Fawcett Street end) up Holmeside and Vine Place. The dozens of routes that currently drop people off at Vine Place will be diverted into Park Lane, then around past the old Civic Centre, down Burdon Road and onto Fawcett Street to continue their journeys.
