Plan to improve A1 are to go on display
PLANS to upgrade the A1 in the North-East are to go on public display.
The new A1 Lobley Hill improvement scheme aims to reduce congestion on the dual carriageway around Gateshead.
The plans have been updated to include a possible extension of the scheme north to Metro Centre junction and south to Coalhouse junction if savings are identified during the design and planning process.
Public exhibitions are taking place next week, and the Highways Agency project team will be available to talk about the scheme.
Once complete it will add another lane to the A1 and build a relief road parallel to the A1 between Lobley Hill and Dunston for a minimum of one mile extending to almost four miles.
Work is due to start later in 2014 or early 2015.
An exhibition will be held on Friday, January 10 from 12noon to 8pm at Dunston Activity Centre, Ellison Road, Gateshead, and on Saturday, January 11 from 10am to 4pm at Lobley Hill Primary School, Rothbury Gardens, Lobley Hill, Gateshead.
