THE A19 roundabout at Seaton Burn will be closed for part of the weekend to allow for resurfacing works to take place.

The Highways Agency will be carrying out the work to the Fisher Lane junction to improve the road surface.

The interchange will be closed from 8pm on Saturday until 6am on Monday with signed diversions in place.

During the closure, only emergency services vehicles will be permitted to use the roundabout.

Highways Agency project manager Shaun Cullumbine said: “This work will improve the road surface and reduce the need for further roadworks at the roundabout.

“We have planned these works to take place over a weekend when traffic flows are lower in order to minimise the disruption to drivers and local residents.

“During the works we advise road users to plan ahead their journeys to avoid delays.”

He added: “Safety is our top priority and for the safety of road users and road workers we encourage all drivers to drive carefully along the diversion routes, keeping within the speed limit, and concentrating on the road ahead.”
