A1 Scotswood to North Brunton
We’re increasing the current two lanes of the A1 in each direction to three lanes between Scotswood and North Brunton.

The scheme is focused on improving the economic performance of the region and improving accessibility to jobs and services whilst supporting additional development in the area.
Population and economic growth requires additional housing and economic land to be developed and there are a number of specific development sites in the immediate vicinity of the route which will have a direct impact on traffic conditions.
Once complete the scheme will provide wider economic impacts for business users and freight. These will result from the improvement in links between locations of economic importance in the region, such as Team Valley Employment Zone, Intu Metrocentre and Newcastle Airport
Without appropriate intervention to improve the performance of the A1 in this location, the problems would be expected to deteriorate further in the future as traffic levels increase.
We intend to:
- support economic growth
- provide a safe and serviceable network
- help traffic flow more freely
- improve the environment
- provide an accessible and integrated road network
There are no planned works at the moment
