ROADWORKS: Closure could well be longer

Talk about dualling the A1 has gone on for years and years.

There has now been talk of one part, near Beadnell, being closed for two weeks for repairs.

They say this hiccup will be two weeks. I don’t think so, it could take much longer.

The small road by Beadnell could have extra traffic going by for too long.

Road closures are often longer than they say.
