Road closures: three for Newcastle drivers over the next fortnight
Drivers in and around Newcastle will have three National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.
And one of them is expected to cause delays of between 10 minutes and half an hour.
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 April 10 2021 to 6am September 2 2023, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 74 Scotswood to junction 79 North Brunton, carriageway closures for major Project carriageway widening.
And a further two closures will begin over the next two weeks:
• A69, from 8am September 4 to 5pm October 8, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A69 Nafferton Bridge - Lane closures to carry out bridge maintenance work.
• A696, from 8pm September 4 to 6am September 5, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A696 outer ring closure on Newcastle airport roundabout and Prestwick roundabout lane one closure on connecting road and approach roads. 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.
