Work to construct a new roundabout on the A695 between Prudhoe and Crawcrook will get underway next month.

Improvements works will see the construction of a new roundabout to replace an existing T- junction between the A695 and the B6395 Stanleyburn Road.

The works were included as a planning condition attached to the development of Gentoo Homes' Cottier Grange development on the site of Prudhoe Hospital in Northumberland.

Construction works are due to start on August 5, 2019 and are expected to last up to 16 weeks.

The majority of the work will be completed off the highway and two-way traffic flows will be maintained on both the A695 and B6395 at all times.

However, it is likely that some work will be required on the carriageway and temporary traffic signals will be needed to provide sufficient safety clearance between traffic and the workforce. Delays caused by queuing traffic can therefore be expected during this time, especially during the morning and evening peaks.

A full road closure will be required when the final road surfacing is carried out, though this will be done during the night to minimise traffic disruption.

We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and ask drivers to allow a little more time for their journeys.
