Olympic Torch in Gateshead area, Saturday 16 June 2012
The following text from Gateshead Council website:-
"The Olympic Flame is coming to Gateshead on Saturday 16 June 2012 and we want you to help us celebrate!
You’ll be able to see the Olympic Torch Relay as it passes through the following places:
06.40 - The Sage Gateshead – watch as the torch abseils down this iconic building at the start of its journey. Best viewing point - Newcastle Quayside.
07.15 - Line the streets and celebrate as the torch passes through Hillgate, Bridge Street, Oakwell Gate, Eastway, A167 Gateshead Highway, Park Lane and Felling bypass.
07.35 - Gateshead International Stadium – a unique chance to view the Olympic Torch as it completes a lap around the track, free entry. Best viewing point – Tyne and Wear Stand.
12.00 - Angel of the North - photo opportunity as the Torch visits one of the North East’s most famous iconic landmarks. Best viewing point – on the grass.
12.10 – 12.20 - Watch the torch from the Angel of the North on Durham Road as it passes through Chowdene on streets Hertford and Trafford and on to Smithy Lane.
13.34 – 13.48 - Line the Streets from Blaydon Leisure & Primary Care Centre along Shibdon Road to the exit for A695"
