Merton Way, Ponteland
A walkway leading to the Shopping Centre which was built on the former site of Ponteland Railway Station and Goods Yard NZ1672 : Ponteland Shopping Centre, Thornhill Road. The railway was built by the North Eastern Railway Company between 1904-05 running 7 miles from South Gosforth to Ponteland via Kenton Bank Foot. The section from the city to the airport is now part of the Metro network. The line to Ponteland was closed to regular passenger traffic in 1929 but casual use continued until 1967 when Richard Beeching instigated the National Rail Closures.

Ponteland had the largest goods yard on the line which was sited on the west side of the station. Facilities in 1920 included five sidings and a reversing loop, water tower, cattle dock and a large brick goods shed.
