More United services in the western suburbs of Newcastle. This time we have the 84 which operated from Marlborough Crescent to Throckley via Sandyford and Westerhope. And the 85/86 which operated a circular route serving Slatyford, West Denton and Denton Burn. These routes have now been largely absorbed into the Stagecoach operated 11 and 39 services. Arriva North East, a successor to United, have recently been awarded a contract by Nexus to operate a route between Throckley and West Denton. Along with another Nexus contracted service, the 4, Arriva North East/United Automobile Services once again have a presence in West Denton after years and years of inactivity.
