Mayor of London Boris Johnson will be visiting north Northumberland later today to lend his support to the Dual the A1 Campaign.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Conservative parliamentary candidate for Berwick and the founder and director of the Dual the A1 Campaign, said: “I am delighted that the Mayor of London has taken time out of his busy schedule to support the campaign. We have secured a massive investment of £290million to improve the road, but the campaign does not stop there, the ultimate aim is to secure full dualling right up to the border”.

“I have called for the enhancements on the A1 north of Ellingham to take place at the same time, if not before, the actual dualling. Specifically, we have identified locations in the vicinities of Warenford, Cheswick and Mousen for overtaking lanes.

“I am also pushing the case for urgent junction improvements to be made between the A1 and roads towards Newham Hall, south of Warenford, the B6348, at the staggered crossroads from Low Middleton to Middleton, heading south-east towards Elwick, south of Buckton, between the B6563 and the road towards Fenwick Granary and heading west towards Lowick Mill, south of Haggerston Castle.”
