A19 & A182 Highway Improvements

Friday 23rd February 2024

Are you travelling to Dalton Park via the A19/A182? We would like to advise you that the highway next to Dalton Park is undergoing roadworks until Spring 2025 to improve traffic flow and enhance capacity at the A19 / A182 junction, to facilitate commercial developmentin the local area. 

Durham County Council are managing this project, which will create up to 2,000 jobs. The roadworks will improve traffic issues at the traffic signals next to the centre, as well as the flow and journey times.

What work will be completed?

The roundabouts on each side of the A19 will be removed and converted into traffic light signaled junctions, with a dedicated crossing for pedestrians and cyclists. The current traffic lanes on the A182 bridge will be increased, with widening also occurring on approaches to the junction. A new standalone cycle / footbridge spanning the A19 will be developed as part of these works.

Programme of works

Works have already begun with the roadworks project aiming for completion Spring 2025. Read the full programme of works here.

Diversions will occur at selected dates and times to support with the roadworks.
