There is currently a problem with our image galleries. We are working to get them fixed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

A19/A182 roadworks


Along with our contractor, BAM Nuttall, we have started works to improve traffic flow and enhance capacity at the A19 / A182 junction, to facilitate commercial development at Jade business park and in the local area.

The improvements will support the expansion of the business park, allowing for the creation of an additional 500,000 sq ft of commercial space and up to 2,000 jobs. These works as well as forthcoming capacity improvements at the Dalton Park Signals will also improve the traffic flow and journey times for general traffic. Improved pedestrian and cyclist connections will be implemented as part of this scheme. 

Works that will be completed

The dumbbell roundabouts on each side of the A19 will be removed and converted  into signalised junctions, with dedicated crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. The existing number of traffic lanes on the A182 bridge, spanning the A19, will be increased, with widening also occurring on approaches to the junction. A new standalone cycle / footbridge spanning the A19 will also be implemented.

Note: Further phases of work are proposed in the vicinity of the A19/A182 junction until scheme completion, anticipated in Spring 2025. Details of future phases will be provided once information is available.

Some diversions for vehicles will be needed during specific construction phases. Localised pedestrian and cyclist diversions will be in place and signposted throughout the various phases of work.

One Network: A19/A182 diversions

Although some disruption is inevitable, we are doing everything possible to minimise the impact to businesses and residents, with phased work and night time closures where possible. Sometimes, the dates of road closures may change due to unforeseen circumstances but we will keep those affected informed.

Funding

The scheme is funded by the Local Growth Fund, Enterprise Zone Fund, Department for Transport, S106 funding and Durham County Council local funding.
