The City Council’s contractors’ Northumbrian Roads will start work on resurfacing Camden Street Gyratory in Southwick at the end of this month.
As part of the works, from Sunday 25 October Wessington Way will be closed between Northern Way and just north of the Queen Alexandra bridge, with diversions via A1231. Motorists are advised to use alternative routes including Northern Spire and Wearmouth Bridge.
This is just one of many re-surfacing projects the council has planned for the coming months.
Further works will take place throughout November, and will include resurfacing work in Hendon, Ryhope, Millfield, Doxford and Washington.
These surfacing works are part of this year’s Highway maintenance programme which consists of over 250 road and footway schemes.
Upcoming road closures are as follows:
Sunday 25 October- Wessington Way across bottom of Northern Way closed
Monday 26 – Wednesday 28 – Stoney Lane and Queens Road Closed
Thursday 29 – Wessington Way Lane one and two closed
Friday 30 – Wessington Way Lane two and three closed
Sunday 1 – November Wessington Way lane closures between Northern Way and Stoney Lane
Also please note Stoney Lane will be closed between Mount Pleasant and Queens Road throughout works.
Deputy Leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Paul Stewart said: “One of this council’s key priorities is investing in our city’s transport network and its infrastructure and this upcoming programme of work is important for keeping the city connected.
“Highway maintenance schemes such as this at this key junction, is part of our priority for improving the city’s roads, and comes as part of a wider programme of resurfacing throughout the city. For work such as this, we aim to complete these quickly with minimal disruption to residents.”
Funding for the works is provided through the council’s Local Transport Plan allocation, its capital budget and the Government’s Pothole fund.
