The A1058 or the Coast Road is a major road in North Tyneside. It runs from Jesmond in Newcastle upon Tyne to Tynemouth which is located on the coast 8 miles (13 km) to the east from Newcastle City Centre. From Heaton to Billy Mill the road is built to grade-separated dual carriageway standard. Tyne Metropolitan College is also located halfway along the road, which allows for easy transit to and from home. East of Billy Mill, it is known as Beach Road. Just west of Heaton, a new route was built across Jesmond Dene in the 1990s, attracting opposition from environmentalists.

The website Pathetic Motorways has speculated that a section of Newcastle's Central Motorway (A167(M)) is actually part of the A1058, although not signed as A1058(M).[1]
