ROAD: Worried about the long-term
When you come into Morpeth from the north you cannot help but notice the continued progress with the bypass over Cottingwood Common.
When you stand on the bridge over that road you will certainly get some spectacular scenic views from Northgate to St George’s, among others.
Speaking of St George’s Hospital, the upheaval to come in Dark Lane soon with the improvements to the sewage pipe infrastructure has been well advertised.
If a roundabout doesn’t go in there, the delays in Dark Lane may be noticeably greater than they are likely to be in the spring of 2017.
