A19 Norton to Wynyard

Widening the A19 between Norton and Wynyard.

Region:  North East
Start date:  2020
Cost:  £75 to £128 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2022
Programme:  

Progress report

We have completed the initial design and are now working with Balfour Beatty Atkins to get the scheme ready for construction.

We have also carried out a range of work including:

  • ecology surveys
  • geo-physical investigations
  • drainage inspections
  • flood risk assessments

What's next?

We are working with Balfour Beatty Atkins to complete the design ready to start construction in March 2020.

Before then we will:

  • complete surveys
  • finalise the location of the site compound
  • develop a plan of how the works will be carried out including traffic management

If you have any questions about this improvement scheme, please contact 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
  • 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
