A19 in South Tyneside to close overnight for resurfacing

Resurfacing work on the A19 in South Tyneside is due to begin in October.

The Highways Agency will resurface the southbound carriageway between the A194 Lindisfarne Interchange and Testos roundabout on the A19.

It said a 50mph speed limit will be enforced during the work, which will take place from 3 to 13 October.

The agency said the southbound carriageway will close Sunday to Friday, between 20:00 BST and 06:00 BST with diversion routes put in place.

Highways Agency project manager Kyle Maylard said: "During the works we advise road users to plan their journeys to avoid delays."
