Highways England, formerly the Highways Agency, is planning the following roadworks on the A1 and A19 in Northumberland and North Tyneside over the next week.

A1 East Ord: Temporary traffic lights will be in use overnight, between 8pm and 6am, for maintenance work on Thursday.

A1 Alnwick: The southbound side of the A1 is currently closed near Alnwick while work takes place to refurbish a bridge. Traffic is running in both directions on the northbound carriageway 24 hours a day. Temporary traffic lights are also in use on the A1068 below the bridge. The project is due to be completed by August. A change-over in the road-closure arrangements will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A19 Silverlink to Wallsend, North Tyneside: The southbound exit slip road at the Wallsend junction will be closed overnight, between 8pm and 6am, for maintenance work. There will also be a lane closure on the southbound carriageway. The project is due to be completed by Wednesday, July 15, and a diversion will be in place.
