A section of the A1 in north Northumberland will be closed next week for resurfacing work.

The A1 will be fully closed in both directions between Denwick and South Charlton from 8pm to 6am, starting on Monday, August 22.

Contractors for Highways England will be resurfacing the road. The work is expected to last for four nights, depending on the weather.

Highways England project manager Steve Bishop said: “When complete, this project will provide drivers with safer and smoother journeys along this stretch of the A1 in Northumberland.

“Every effort is being made to ensure disruption to traffic and local residents is kept to a minimum.”

Clearly signed diversions will be in place via the B6341.
