Drivers in and around Gateshead will have five National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing waits of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that three closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:

A19, from 8pm February 7 to 6am February 14, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A19 eastbound, Seaton Burn to Dudley lane, lane closures and diversion route for works off network.

A1, from 8pm January 29 to 6am April 8, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 southbound, junction 68 Lobley Hill to junction 67 Kingsway, Dedicated lane closure.

A1, from 8pm February 7 2022 to 6am August 31 2024, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 65 Birtley to junction 69 Coalhouse, carriageway closures and lane closures for major project widening works.

And a further two closures will begin over the next two weeks:

A184, from 8pm February 14 to 6am February 15, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A194M Circulatory Whitemere Pool Round about lane closure for Technology equipment.

A1, from 8pm February 22 to 6am February 24, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A1 northbound, junction 69, entry slip road closure for electrical works.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
