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 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 April 10 2021 to 6am December 9 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:
• A1, from 8pm November 8 to 6am November 10, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound and southbound, junction 79 to junction 80, Lane closure for drainage works.
• A1, from 8pm November 10 to 6am November 11, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 northbound, junction 73 to junction 74 lane 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.
