Much of Dunston forms part of the inner Gateshead regeneration area. The Dunston area is serviced by the Dunston railway station, along the Tyne Valley Line. Dunston is now split into two distinct areas separated by the A1 dual carriageway. Much of the area south of the A1 is known as Dunston Hill.
