Airport roadworks

A SERIES of roadworks are under way around Newcastle Airport.

The Highways Agency will be replacing and improving road markings and installing new signs on the A696 Newcastle Airport roundabout overnight, between 8pm and 6am, until March 14.

There will be lane and carriageway closures on the approach to the airport, with diversions and convoy systems in place at various times. However, the airport access road and B6918 will be open at all times.

The second phase is resurfacing two small sections of Prestwick roundabout overnight between March 14 and 16.
