Road closures: four for Gateshead drivers this week
Drivers in and around Gateshead will have four National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.
And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing holdups of between 10 minutes and half an hour.
The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:
• A194(M), from 8pm April 7 to 6am May 7, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A194M southbound, Havanna to A1M, junction 65, carriageway closure, lane closure and hard shoulder closure for communications works.
• 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 seven days:
• A1, from 9pm May 5 to 6am May 6, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 68 and junction 69. Entry and exit slip road closures for horticultural works.
• A1, from 9pm May 6 to 6am May 7, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 69, slip road closures for horticultural works.
National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
