This update is to inform you of essential highway maintenance works to be undertaken on the A1.
Attached is a drawing showing the extents of a scheme on the northbound carriageway at Blyth (Drawing Number 211151/00/01). See the map here.
The works will be undertaken in a predominantly rural environment.
Works will comprise carriageway planing/resurfacing, the application of road markings and the installation of road studs.
Site works are presently programmed to be carried out overnight, commencing 24 June 2013. Traffic management will commence to be installed at 20:00hrs and be completely removed by 06:00hrs. Every attempt will be made to complete the noisiest activities as early as possible.
The total number of shifts to complete the two schemes has not yet been determined.
