The exit from the A19 to the A690 Durham Road junction closes from 6am tomorrow Saturday 24 until 7pm Sunday 25 October.

Traffic is being diverted via Chester Road.

The closure is necessary for updates that are seeing extra lanes, new signaling and improvements to the junction’s drainage, fencing and kerbing. The southbound slip road from the A690 Durham Road junction to the A19 was closed last weekend for its resurfacing works.

Deputy Leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Paul Stewart said: “We always look to minimise disruption, so these important and necessary works have been programmed over the weekend.

“As a council we are committed to continually upgrading and improving our highways network for residents and businesses. I would like to thank all drivers for their patience as we complete this next stage of another important upgrade to our city’s infrastructure.”
