We have written to various stakeholders in the surrounding areas of this scheme to give them an overview of our planned work, which includes:
- Esk Bridge to junction 44 southbound: resurfacing and reinstatement of road markings
- Junction 44 to Metal Bridge northbound: resurfacing and reinstatement of road markings
- Environmental fence panel replacement in both directions
- Junction 44 roundabout: resurfacing and improvements to the road markings
The works will be carried out in two phases:
Phase 1 will start at the beginning of April 2019 and will include the resurfacing and fence panel works.
The resurfacing will be carried out overnight with the fence panel renewals taking place during the day. There will be a speed restriction in place for the duration of the works.
Phase 2 will be carried out over 5 weekend overnight full closures. Suitable well-signed diversions will be in place and further details of the exact closure dates and times will be released later.
