Motorists facing Hartlepool town centre delays

MOTORISTS are warned to expect delays when a main road is closed for emergency repairs to be carried out.

A section of York Road, between Victoria Road and Lucan Street, Hartlepool, is expected to be shut for around 24 hours from 9.30am on Wednesday so that Northern Gas Networks can carry out repairs to a gas main.

The traffic lights at the junction of York Road and Victoria Road junction will operate as normal during the works and pedestrian access will be maintained.

Diversions will be in place although drivers who use this part of York Road are asked to find an alternative route wherever possible.
