A1 works by Morpeth


Works on the A1 between the Clifton and Fairmoor interchanges, near Morpeth, started last night.

They involve marking out narrow lanes on the A1, both northbound and southbound, along with a reduced speed limit at all times.

Once the lanes are marked out, a temporary safety barrier will be installed and a fibre-optic cable diverted. Following that, work will begin to tie in the new slip roads to the A1 and these should be complete by mid-February.
