Most owner occupiers have at least one car and families will have three. However, it could mean when the Scotswood redevelopment is finished, Armstrong Rd and Scotswood Rd could become a lot busier. I am thinking maybe reopening the railway line and/or introducing more bus services will be needed.One of my friends from University has bought a house in Hebburn on a new estate where a lot of the houses don’t have a drive or garage, not even one of those on the street drives. It is next to a Metro station, however I’m always under the impression that if you can afford to buy your own home then you likely has a decent enough paying and job will likely be able to afford/will have a car.
A big problem that I can see in future is that if electric cars do become the norm, then how are these people going to be able to charge their cars up at home? The resale value on them in future will just plummet.
