A1(M) Vigo Railway
We are installing a tunnel liner under the existing A1 motorway bridges and realigning the cycleway in Chester le Street.
The work is needed to ensure the safety of the tunnel and longevity of the bridge. This will involve temporarily closing the Sustrans cycle route and providing an alternative diversion. The works were stopped in November 2018 following the discovery of technical issues which have now been resolved.
The aims of this scheme are to provide:
- safety and longevity of the tunnel
- increased access to cycle way
