Triple decker roundabout coming to North Tyneside in August
Posted on: 04/07/2016

The joint venture between John Sisk and Lagan Construction are due to commence work on a triple decker roundabout project in North Tyneside. Contractors for Highways England will be lowering the A19 beneath the existing A1058 Coast Road and roundabout, with the aim to reduce congestion and improve the reliability of people’s journeys.

The scheme, costing £75 million, is on the main route to and from the Tyne Tunnel. Drivers will be able to use a new section of road running under the existing junction. The improvements are part of the government’s five year £15 billion road investment programme, designed to support opportunities and economic growth as part of the Northern Powerhouse initiative.

Highways England project manager Julie Alexander said:

“Once complete, this scheme will improve journey times on the A19 by reducing congestion and improving safety for the thousands of drivers that use this junction each day as well as cyclists and pedestrians.”

Work is due to start in the summer and is scheduled to last for at least two years.
