Highways England has revealed its plans for a new triple decker roundabout in the North-east.
The roundabout will form a crucial part of Highways England’s £75m scheme to reduce congestion and improve connectivity on A19 Coast Road in north Tyneside.
The project will see the A19 lowered beneath the existing A1058, meaning people travelling along the road will no longer have to queue at the roundabout.
A joint venture between Sisk and Lagan Construction Group will carry out the work, with construction on the project set to start later this summer.
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.”
