Progress report

During 2018, we have continued to make good progress gathering and collating information to inform our proposed design.

Topographical, environmental and drainage surveys have now been completed and we are currently reviewing them. You can see our published scheme announcement brochure from last year.

Please sign up to this page to keep informed of updates as this project progresses.

What's next?

Following the survey reviews, we'll finalise the preliminary design which will be presented for approval in July.

Once the design is signed off, we'll appoint a contractor to take the project through to the next stage.

If you have any questions regarding the surveys, please contact the scheme mailbox on A19NortontoWynyard@highwaysengland.co.uk

Why we need this scheme

Users of the A19 between Norton and Wynyard already experience congestion and delays, particularly during peak hours, which can result in unreliable journey times. Traffic is also expected to grow with new housing and employment developments planned for the area. Furthermore, the existing concrete surfacing results in a noise issue for local residents.

The scheme in detail

The scheme will benefit local residents and businesses by relieving congestion, improving journey time reliability and network resilience. Replacement of the road surface will also reduce road traffic noise. The scheme will promote growth in the local economy and local area by bringing forward developments in the Tees Valley area, supporting the government’s initiative for growth in the north-east. Both carriageways will be widened to provide three traffic lanes. The existing speed limit of 70mph will be retained. The existing section of concrete carriageway will be replaced with low noise surfacing. Any current Public Rights of Way including footbridges and underpasses will either be maintained or replaced. The additional lane in both directions provided between the junctions will help traffic joining or leaving the A19.

Aims

The aims of this scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion by increasing road capacity
  • significantly reduce traffic noise
  • reduce delays and improve journey reliability
  • make journeys safer by improving the standard and capacity of the road
  • help support economic growth by assisting in bringing forward developments in the Tees Valley whilst supporting the government’s initiative for growth in the north-east
