A1 in Northumberland

We propose to improve the A1 in Northumberland by providing additional road capacity and enabling greater access to and from Northumberland. Our improvement programme includes:

  • A1 Morpeth to Ellingham: 5 miles of upgrade to dual carriageway linking the Alnwick bypass with the dual carriageway near Ellingham. This, in combination with the A1 Morpeth to Felton scheme will create a continuous, high quality dual carriageway from Newcastle to Ellingham.
  • A1 north of Ellingham: A set of measures to enhance the performance and safety of the A1.
