Essential road closures and diversions will be in place in Ingleby Barwick from this weekend to allow for carriageway improvement works to progress.
A temporary closure of Broom Hill Avenue at the Sandgate junction will be in operation from 7am this Saturday, 12 November, until approximately 8pm on Sunday 13 November.
A temporary closure will then be in place on The Rings at the Sandgate junction from approximately 10pm on Sunday 13 November until midnight on Wednesday 16 November.
Following completion of these works, a temporary closure of Myton Way at the Sandgate junction will then be in operation from 7pm on Friday 18 November until 8pm on Sunday 20th November.
The closures are required as part of the works to dual Myton Way from the Tesco roundabout to Broom Hill. Diversions will be in place throughout.
The Sandgate roundabout is also being replaced with traffic signals and Ingleby Way is being dualled from the Tesco roundabout to Barwick Way roundabout.
The works are part of a wider project to reduce peak period congestion in the centre of Ingleby Barwick which has already seen Quarry Farm roundabout upgraded.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor Nigel Cooke, said: “We are now reaching the final stretch of improvements to Myton Way and we would like to thank residents for their patience while the works have been taking place.
“These short-term road closures are now needed as the carriageway is brought up to final surfacing levels, and are essential for highway safety. We appreciate the temporary road closures may be frustrating for motorists so every effort has been taken to minimise disruption throughout the scheme and we would like to urge motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow extra time to reach their destination.
“We know that Myton Way is very well used by commuters and once complete, the wider scheme will ease congestion in the centre of Ingleby Barwick for the long-term, making traffic flow much more freely to meet the needs of residents, visitors and businesses.”
