A1 lane closures to repair kerbs

Work to replace kerbs along 3.5 miles of the A1 near Newton on the Moor, will begin next week.

Highways Agency project manager Nick Adshead said: “We will be replacing the kerbs between Newton on the Moor village and Old Felton. The existing kerbs have deteriorated and, as they form an integral part of the drainage system, it is important they are replaced. To minimise any disruption caused by the work, we are carrying it out in two phases.”

Phase one will take place from June 30 to September 9 on the southbound carriageway, and phase two will take place from August 18 to November 4on the northbound carriageway.

For the safety of road workers and to carry out the work as quickly as possible, work will take place during the day, one lane will be closed and a 50mph speed limit will be in operation.
