Hartlepool Borough Council is currently carrying out remedial work on a stretch of the A689 heading into town between the Owton Lodge roundabout and the Brierton Lane turn-off.

Sections of the busy dual carriageway have been reduced in phases to a single lane since the scheme started last month.

A borough council spokesman has now said: “We are looking at September 8 for the scheme to be completed and thanks motorists and residents in the area for their patience while the roadworks have been ongoing.”
