Resurfacing work closes A19 overnight

DRIVERS have been reminded that a busy stretch of the A19 will be closed overnight until next week.

As a result of carriageway resurfacing works on the northbound carriageway, temporary road closures will be required until Wednesday, July 6.

The works will be carried out overnight between 8pm-6am. The works will affect northbound traffic only, between the A19 sliproad at the A689 and A19 off-slip at the A179.

The diversion route will be via the A689 to Hartlepool then A179 to Hart Village and A19.

Meanwhile, temporary traffic lights installed on the Seal Sands Road will remain in place until the end of next month, when essential water mains renewal work is completed.
