A184, from 8pm May 16 to 6am October 31, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A19 northbound and southbound, Downhill Lane, carriageway closures and lane closures for interchange upgrades.

A1, from 8pm July 18 2022 to 6am March 10 2023, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, J70 Dunston to J74 Scotswood - carriageway closure for communications on behalf of Highways England.

And a further two closures will begin over the next seven days:

A69, from 9am to 4pm on October 12, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A69 Nafferton Farm Bridge - Two slow lane closures for structural inspection work.

A1, from 8pm October 17 to 6am October 21, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 73 to junction 74, lane closures fro inspection/survey works.

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