A19 Norton to Wynyard

Widening the A19 between Norton and Wynyard.

Region:  North East
Start date:  March 2020
Cost:  £60 to £70 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2022
Programme:  

Progress report

Work is underway to widen the carriageway to three lanes in each direction.

What's next?

To do this safely we need to close the carriageway overnight:

  • Monday 18 May - overnight closure southbound from A689 to A1027
  • Tuesday 19 May - overnight closure southbound from A689 to A1027 and overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Wednesday 20 May - overnight closure southbound from A689 to A1027 and overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Thursday 21 May - overnight closure southbound from A689 to A1027 and overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Tuesday 26 May - overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Wednesday 27 May - overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Thursday 28 May - overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689
  • Friday 29 May - overnight closure northbound from A1046 to A689

There will be no overnight closures over the bank holiday from Friday 22 May till Monday 25 May, inclusive.

Clearly signed local diversions will be in place during all closures.

There will also be lane closures during this period but the road will remain open.

Please note that whilst we always aim to work to the programme, unforeseen circumstances may mean slight changes to it.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause you. We will make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to an absolute minimum.

Please remember that closures can change. For the most up to date information (including timings) check the Planned Roadworks feed. You can view on the Roadworks search page for more search options, or check our regional Twitter feed.

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
  • support economic growth by assisting in bringing forward developments in the Tees Valley while supporting the government’s initiative for growth in the north-east
