First published in News

DIVERSIONS will be in place during night closures of the A66 this week.

The A66 between Neasham Road and Morton Palms in Darlington will be closed overnight between Thursday, June 19 and Saturday, July 5.

The closures will affect both eastbound and westbound traffic and will take place between 8pm and 6am to allow for roadworks to be completed.

At weekends, the road will be closed from 8pm on a Friday night until 6am on a Monday morning.

During weekdays there will be a temporary 40mph speed limit and a 2.9m vehicle width restriction in place.

Parking lay-bys on the A66 will be closed and there will be lane restrictions on Neasham Road and Morton Palms roundabouts.

During the road closures drivers will be diverted off the A66 to Grange Road, Victoria Road, Saint Cuthbert’s Way, Freeman’s Place, Haughton Road, Darlington Eastern Transport Corridor and back to the A66, and vice-versa.

The roadworks are being undertaken to provide a new, smoother road surface.
