Road closures: three for Gateshead drivers over the next fortnight
Drivers in and around Gateshead will have three National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.
And one of them is expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing a holdup of between 10 and 30 minutes.
The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:
• 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:
• A69, from 9am November 21 to 4pm November 23, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A69 Both directions Newton to Whittle Dene - Lane closures with some switching for Routine highway and drainage maintenance.
• A1, from 8pm November 27 to 6am November 28, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 southbound, junction 74 to 73 lane closure for Horticultural work.
National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
