Why we need this scheme
The A1 in Northumberland is an important route between England and Scotland, especially for long distance travel along the eastern side of the country. The improvements north of Ellingham will provide opportunities to overtake slow moving vehicles through the use of overtaking lanes.
The improvements will look to improve the safety of the A1 north of Ellingham.
The scheme in detail
We propose to improve the A1 north of Ellingham by enhancing the performance and safety of this section of road. Our improvement programme includes enhancing the performance and safety of the A1 north of Ellingham, including overtaking opportunities, junction improvements and improved crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
Further detail about the proposals for the improvements can be found on our consultation page, which provides the plans presented at the recent consultation events.
The scheme aims to:
- improve safety
- improve journey times and journey time reliability
- enable economic growth in Northumberland
