A19/A1058 Coast Road junction

Improvements to the A19/A1059 coast road junction by lowering the A19 beneath the existing roundabout in a cutting.

Region:  North East
Start date:  2016-17
Cost:  £66.4 to £85.6 million
Status:  CURRENT
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2018-19
Programme:  

Progress report

The A19 underpass is now open for traffic and we are receiving excellent feedback from customers, residents and businesses.

What's next?

We are continuing to finish off landscaping, traffic management and other works. This may require occasional overnight closures which will be highlighted in advance.

Community news

We recently held an event marking the opening to traffic which was well attended. Visitors were able to talk to project managers and to view videos and displays about the work.


Why we need this scheme

The junction suffers peak-time congestion with delays of over four minutes per vehicle on the A19 southbound approach. The accident rate at this junction is higher than the national average (2008-12).

The scheme in detail

We propose to:

  • realign the A19 under the existing A19 roundabout
  • construct slip roads to allow the A19/A1058 coast road junction to provide access to the junction to and from the lowered A19
  • construct three new single span structures to allow the A1058 coast road and A19 roundabout to cross over the realigned A19
  • construct retaining walls so that we can minimise how much new land the new layout will use
  • retain or enhance facilities for cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians
  • widen Middle Engine Lane railway bridge to accommodate the A19 north-facing slip roads
  • install new infrastructure/street furniture associated with the scheme works identified above, including central reserve concrete barriers, drainage, pavements, road lighting, traffic signals, traffic signs, road markings and CCTV

Aims

We aim to:

  • reduce congestion
  • increase capacity
  • improve journey times
  • improve road safety for both road users and the local community
  • support regeneration in Tyne and Wear and Northumberland
  • maintain or improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists crossing and travelling along the route

Cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians

We've had to close the bridleway running east from Battle Hill to Silverlink and this will be closed for 12-18 months.

A signed diversion is in place for pedestrians and cyclists. There was no diversion that would be suitable for riders. We know this is disruptive and we're sorry for any inconvenience.

The final scheme will include two new footbridges for pedestrians and cyclists across the A1058.

    Thank you David for asking for the updating of the progress report, we opened to traffic as the contractual agreement stated, at the end of March and are finishing off tidying up the area, carrying out re-surface work on A1058 and de-mobilising the site compound and should have this completed by mid to end of May.

    Kind regards

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you had a firm date on when the cycle lane would be open along the A1058 around Silverlink? The diversion in place is not brilliant – both in terms of safety and sign-posting.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    • Stuart Bookless

      Hi Brad
      The cycle lane is the responsibility of North Tyneside Council, they will be better positioned to respond.

      Many Thanks

  • Keith Broderick

    A19 was opened on time at the end of March but those of us who regularly use the A1058 Coast Road in the evening are now facing more disruption than in the last 2 years. When will the project be finally completed (i.e. no lane or road closures)?
