Drivers warned about A174 Parkway closures next week

Drivers are advised that there will be overnight full closures of parts of the A174 / A19 Parkway junction in Middlesbrough next week, as ongoing work to complete a significant part of the pinch point scheme.

Road surfacing and road marking work will be taking place on the Parkway roundabout and approach roads overnight between 7 and 10 April, 8pm to 6am. The northbound exit slip road from the A19 to the Parkway junction and sections of the roundabout will be closed. There will also be lane closures on the A174 approach to the roundabout.

Road construction work will also be taking place 24 hours a day between 10am Tuesday 7 April and 6am Saturday 11 April, which will require a closure of the dedicated left turn lane from the A174 eastbound approach to the A19 northbound entry slip road.

The closures have been planned to take place during the Easter school holidays when traffic flows are lower in order to keep disruption to drivers to a minimum. The restrictions will be lifted as soon as it is safe to do so.
