A total of 28 construction jobs will be created next year with the improvement of a busy roundabout.

The A1 Seaton Burn and A19 Fisher Lane roundabout, which suffers from peak hour congestion, will see improvements carried out next year to improve the A1 northbound diverge and southbound merge facilities, as well as widening of the A1068, A1 and A19 approaches to the roundabout.

The scheme, which will bring in 28 jobs, is expected to begin in April and be completed by December, at a cost of £5.4m.

Seaton Burn is one of 12 schemes in the region that will either start or be completed in 2014, others include repairing a 300m length of the B6344 near Rothbury.
