I checked the Online newspapers and found the following:
Campbell Street South, mentioned: 5, May 1942.
Campbell Park Road, mentioned: 3, Feb 1952.
I can't find any articles for these street names between the dates 1942 and 1952.
The following is information from the book, 'Streets of Hebburn':
CAMPBELL STREET: Situated on north side of 'Wooden Bridge', and reached down to Argyle Street.
Built c.1900. Demolished c.1969-70. Was removed and replaced by a footpath. The plots of land that both sides of Campbell Street stood on are now grassed over.
CAMPBELL PARK ROAD: Runs from Hedgeley Road, up to Monkton Lane.
The part that runs from Hedgeley Road, up to Victoria Road, was formerly named 'Campbell Street South' - named after Campbell Street, on the 'north' of the railway.
Campbell Park Road covers a very big residential area stretching from Hedgeley Road on the north to Monkton Lane and Lukes Lane on the south.
Named after: Campbell Street, and Campbell Park: Jarrow FC's ground, which opened about 1924.
VICTORIA ROAD EAST: Named Victoria Road in 1897 at Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
'East' added after 1911. From the old Bowes line (near Northbourne Road), up to the Station Road/Hall Road junction.
177 properties, 166 residential - 74 flats (Nos. 1-311) - 9 of them built in 1920.
The houses on Victoria Road East, from Byron Avenue down to No.126, are semi-detached.
The properties after No. 126 Victoria Road East, heading towards the Clock Hotel, are terraced houses, in blocks of four, starting at No.208, at the end of which are 3 semi-detached properties.
This unusual numbering system seems due to different builders.
Named after: Queen Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria).
VICTORIA ROAD WEST: Named Victoria Road in 1897 at Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.
Formerly Shields Road. 205 properties, 174 residential - 50 flats. Built in or before 1881. 8 in 1935.
Known locally as 'The High Road', due to its high elevation from the river. 'West' added after 1911.
Named after: Queen Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria). From Station Road/Hall Road up to Bill Quay Bridge.
