Plans have recently been passed for the construction of a new arena to the east of the town and the road access is to be improved with the demolition of the Gateshead flyover and parts of the old High Street. The purpose-built arena, exhibition centre and hotel are anticipated to bring over 300,000 extra visitors a year to the town.
