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

We have used state-of-the-art vibrating piling rigs to create retaining walls along the side of the northbound carriageway. This has halved the amount of time we need to install piling in this section. It has also reduced noise and vibrations compared with more traditional methods.

Our standard working hours are:

  • Monday to Thursday - 7am to 6pm
  • Friday - 7am to 5pm
  • Saturday - 7am to 4pm
  • Sunday - 8am to 4pm

We work over the weekend so we can complete the scheme as quickly and efficiently as possible. We also have to sometimes close the road and work overnight for safety reasons.

We’d like to thank you for your patience during these essential works and to apologise for the disturbance and inconvenience our work causes you. We are doing everything we can to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to an absolute minimum.

What's next?

We are now starting bored piling and continuing with drainage and earthworks and will be working on both sides of the carriageway over the next few weeks.

There are two pieces of work during August when we need to close the carriageway and work overnight (8pm to 6am) for safety reasons:

  • On Friday 7 August, we will close the A19 overnight northbound from A1027 to A689. This will allow us to adjust existing traffic barriers to keep motorists safe by preventing them from accidentally driving into our work site.
  • On Monday 17 August, and then again on Friday 21 August we will close the road overnight southbound from A689 to A1027. This is to allow us to dig trial holes to prove ground conditions and search for obstructions.

We will also be checking the existing culverts to ensure future southbound works are buildable.

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 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
