Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery has approached Newcastle City Council and NSW Roads and Maritime Service over concerns about traffic congestion near Birmingham Gardens Ambulance Station.
Ms Hornery said she had received complaints from residents and motorists who had been caught in gridlock near the intersection of Tillie Street, Wilkinson Avenue and Sandgate Road.
She said she had also received questions and complaints from paramedics who told her they had been caught in traffic jams when trying to leave the station.

“Between council and the RMS we need to come up with a practical solution that improves the flow of traffic during peak periods,” she said.
The state government confirmed last month it would build a new Birmingham Gardens Ambulance Station, to replace the existing facility, about 600m down the road on Nash Street.
