Yorkshire and North East - Maintenance schemes

Maintenance schemes taking place in the Yorkshire and North East region.

Project information

Schemes across the region

Click on the headings below to find out more details about the maintenance schemes taking place in Yorkshire and the North East:

The Aycliffe Interchange, junction 59, was opened to traffic in 1965 and is a concrete over bridge carrying the A167 over the A1(M).  Recently, through routine maintenance we identified that a section of the concrete bridge deck is in need of repair on the southern side of the junction. Since then we have been developing a scheme to carry out the necessary repairs. 

We are now ready to carry out the repairs and this will involve a full closure of the southern side of the roundabout for 10 weeks as well as night-time closures and a full weekend closure.

The work will include concrete repairs to the southern bridge as well as street lighting renewal and resurfacing.

The southern bridge requires significant repairs to maintain safety, allowing us to re-open both lanes and maintain the bridge for years to come. The investment in the lighting and resurfacing will improve journeys and maintain safety around the junction.

What are we going to be doing?

The work has now started, on Tuesday 2 April and should be complete by mid-Summer 2024.

The project involves three main phases:

  • Phase 1 - Bridge deck repairs: Tuesday 2 April - July 2024

    Tuesday 2 April and Wednesday 3 April, overnight closures from 8pm to 6am. The southern side of the roundabout is now closed, as of Friday 5 April, for around 10 weeks to allow the concrete repairs. 

    We have installed narrow lanes on A1 northbound beneath the bridge with 50mph in place for safety, whilst we carry out the repairs on the bridge deck. 

During this phase we will be carrying out hydro-demolition of the existing bridge deck to remove the defective concrete. This is a very technical process and requires significant temporary work and cannot be done in overnight closures.

  • Phase 2 - Lighting renewal: mid-May - mid - August 2024

Working around the concrete repairs, there will be additional night-time closures between 8pm - 6am

  • Phase 3 - Resurfacing of the roundabout: July 2024

A full weekend closure from Friday 8pm till Monday 6am for one weekend in July 2024, dates to be confirmed.

Please note that the precise dates and times of the works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Where possible, we’ll keep you updated of significant changes, through social media and our website.

 

 

What does this mean for you?

For road users

To carry out the work safely we will need to use a combination of full closures during the day and over-night.

During the closure, we’ll put diversions routes in place, which are detailed below.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIVERSIONS BELOW

Motorway traffic

For vehicles and drivers who are authorised to use the motorway, the diversion will take road users south on the A1(M) to junction 58, Burtree, before returning northbound on the A1(M) to junction 59 to continue north or to rejoin the A167. This diversion will add an additional 5 minutes of journey time.

Non-motorway traffic

For non-motorway traffic, the diversion is to use the A68, joining on to the A6072, before using B6444 to rejoin the A167. This diversion will add an additional 10 minutes of journey time.

 

 

Information for local residents

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work. We’ll make every effort to carefully manage noise levels and additional lighting to minimise the impact.

 

Residents on the official diversion.

There will be increased traffic on the diversion routes and delays are expected. We apologise for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience.

 

As the work progresses, we will provide regular updates on this page and through our social media channels.

 

Thank you for your patience and support during this essential work

We are expecting the work to be complete by winter 2024.

Make sure to visit keep up to date on this page and follow us on social media, by following @HighwaysNEast on Twitter or National Highways: North-East on Facebook.

We are resurfacing sections of the A61 between the Westwood junction and junction 36 of the M1.

In addition to the resurfacing we are going to to be carrying out maintenance to the bridge joints on the Tankersley Roundabout, M1 junction 36.

To do this safely we need to close the A61 Monday to Friday between 8pm and 6am with additional closures of the slip roads at junction 36.

It is currently planned that the following closures will be in place, subject to weather and any unplanned events:

A61 closure -  Monday 26 February - Friday 15 March, Monday to Friday, 8pm to 6am.

M1 junction 36 West side closure - Monday 11 - Wednesday 13 March, three nights, 8pm to 6am.

M1 junction 36 East side closure - Thursday 14 - Wednesday 20 March, weekdays only, 8pm to 6am.

Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey. 

M1 junction 43 – 48 Concrete central barrier replacement

What are we doing?

We need to replace the wire rope central barrier with a concrete one, this is to improve safety for drivers.

The scheme has been split into 2 sections and will take around 16 months to complete.

The first section, between junctions 46 and 47 will start in March and is expected to last around 7 months.

The second section, between junctions 43 and 45, which also includes upgrading the LED lighting, will start in August and is expected to take 9 months.

What traffic management will be in place?

To do the work safely we need to close 1 lane on the north and southbound carriageways and the speed limit will be reduced to 50mph as sections of the barrier are removed.

The traffic management will start between junctions 46 and 47 with the first phase. As work progresses, we will extend the traffic management to include junctions 43 to 45. This allows us to reduce the overall duration of the work and maintain safety.

We advise all drivers to allow more time for your journey, with significant delays expected during the evening peak as people leave the Leeds area.

We apologise in advance for any disruption.

We ask drivers plan their journeys, to allow extra time and use alternates where possible.

Why are we replacing the barrier?

Concrete barriers are even stronger than metal ones and significantly reduce the risk of vehicles crossing over from one carriageway to another, improving safety and reducing the duration of incident-related congestion.

We’ll be carrying out essential maintenance work on a weather station on the A616, in the vicinity of Dark Lane.  

What we are doing and when 

We’ll be upgrading a weather station working overnight on selected dates between 8pm and 6am.  

Closures and diversions  

We will close the A616 to through traffic between Flouch Roundabout and Fox Valley Roundabout overnight between 8pm and 6am on  

  • Monday 29 January to Thursday 1 February – 4 nights  
  • Tuesday 27 February – 1 night  
  • Tuesday 19 March – 1 night  

We may also need an additional closure to remove the traffic management later.  A fully signed diversion will be in place. 

There are a small number of properties within our closure and instructions have been sent by post, access will be maintained with operatives on-site during closures. 

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this work may cause.

M621 Smools Lane Underpass - Parapet Replacement 

We're replacing life expired parapets on a bridge which carries the M621 over a footpath known as Smools Lane between M621 Junction 1 to M62 Junction 27. 

We will carry out this work within the same traffic management for the current M621 Junction 1 to 7 improvement work, to reduce the impact on customers.  We will work a mix of day and nights, including weekends. Some of the work we will do will be noisy, we aim to complete this part of the work during the day. 

We'll need to make some adjustments to the traffic management, but the work will be carried out behind the narrow lanes of the current improvement scheme. 

We will close the M621 overnight on the following dates to adjust the traffic management:-

  • Anti clockwise closure between M621 J4 to M62 J27 - for 3 nights Mon 29 to Wed 31 Jan.
  • Clockwise closure between M62 J27 and M621 J1 - for 3 nights Thurs 01 to Sat 03 Feb.

A fully signed diversion will be in place via Geldard Road (A62) for both sets of closures. 

We appreciate your patience while this important safety work is completed. 

We are back at Salters Brook Bridge following damage caused by a car hitting the barriers and bouncing onto the parapet on the opposite side. This follows a similar incident last year, which resulted in significant repairs to the stonework.

The bridge is currently under two-way traffic signals as temporary barriers are in place for safety. We continue to undertake repairs following investigations and require two overnight road closures, one to deliver and place the scaffolding and one to take it down at the end of the work.

We will close the A628 between Flouch Roundabout to Tintwistle from 9 pm to 5 am on 15/01/24 for one night and on 26/2/24, 9 pm until 5 am, to remove the traffic management.

These dates are subject to change due to weather conditions on this rural route.

Traffic calming measures including signage, appropriate speed limits and a safety barrier (one side of the bridge) are already in place however, we will review this to ensure no further measures are required. 

M62/B6114 Saddleworth Road - Scammonden Bridge - notice of routine maintenance work

We'll carry out routine maintenance work (welding) on Scammonden Bridge for three days starting Monday, 8th January. The M62 will remain fully open and is unaffected.

We will work during the day under two-way traffic lights on the B6114 Saddleworth Road while lane closures are in place.

The bridge is still accessible to vehicles and pedestrians during work. However, there may be times when the footway is temporarily unavailable, and the opposite footway needs to be used by walkers.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this work.

We’re providing an update on our work to repair a bridge spanning the M180 (near Outmill) following severe damage caused by a lorry hitting the underside of the structure, last year. 

As the damage was extensive and asbestos was present, we needed to take time to design, check and approve the work to repair the bridge. During this time, we closed lane 1 of the M180 westbound, to reduce the risk of further impacts on the damaged area. 

Following extensive investigations, we are now able to carry out the full repairs on the bridge which include concrete repairs, beam replacements, parapet replacements, new bridge joints, waterproofing and resurfacing. 

We aim to start work on Monday 15 January and estimate completion by Friday 28 June, subject to weather conditions under the following road closures.

  • Full closure of Derrythorpe Road (the road carried by Mutton Lane Bridge) for the duration of the work Monday 15 January to Friday 28 June 2024.
  • Lane 1 closure of the M180 westbound (already in place) for the duration of the work 
  • A mix of overnight and weekend closures of the M180 in both directions, subject to weather conditions.

We're replacing the traffic signals at the Lofthouse roundabout.

To do this safely we will put in place a series of overnight slip road closures and some short lane closures.

Closures will take place flexibly overnight from 8pm until 6am working Monday to Friday.  Occasionally, we may also have lane closures in place during the day, when required. 

Work will start on Monday 8 January 2024 and will last for around 12 weeks.

When closures are in place the following fully signed diversions will be in operation:

Closure of M62 westbound exit slip road at junction 29
Traffic intending to exit at the M62 junction 29 westbound exit slip will be diverted onto the M62 westbound to junction 28. At junction 28 traffic should take the sixth exit to merge onto the M62 eastbound then travel to junction 29 and take the eastbound exit slip.

Closure of M62 eastbound entry slip road at junction 29
Traffic intending to enter at the M62 junction 29 eastbound entry slip will be diverted to take the third exit at M62 junction 29 and merge onto the M62 westbound to junction 28. At junction 28 traffic should take the sixth exit to merge onto the M62 eastbound. Traffic will then continue on the eastbound past junction 29.

Closure of M62 eastbound exit slip road at junction 29
Traffic intending to exit at the M62 junction 29 eastbound exit slip will be diverted onto the M62 eastbound to junction 30. At junction 30 traffic should take the fourth exit to merge onto the M62 westbound then travel to junction 29 and take the westbound exit slip.

Closure of Lofthouse roundabout western quadrant
Traffic intending to travel north on the western quadrant of the roundabout will be diverted onto the M62 westbound to junction 28. At junction 28 traffic should take the sixth exit to merge onto the M62 eastbound then travel to junction 29 and take the eastbound exit slip.

Closure of Lofthouse roundabout southern quadrant
Traffic intending to travel west on the southern quadrant of the roundabout will be diverted onto the M1 southbound to junction 41. At junction 41 traffic will take the fourth exit to merge onto the M1 northbound then travel to junction 42 and take the northbound exit slip.

We're installing a new equestrian crossing on the A616 near Underbank Reservoir. At the same time we will also make improvements to the pavement and signage nearby.

Providing this crossing will ensure horses, riders and cyclists remain safe while connecting two parts of a local bridal way. 

We aim to start this work on Monday 4 September - so we can set up traffic management there will be full night time closures on the A616 on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September, 8pm until 6am. 

We will then work under hard shoulder, layby and lane closures 24/7 - the road will remain open to traffic until we remove the traffic management at the end of the work. We will do this overnight under two full road closures. Some footpaths will be closed while we work and bus stops in the area will be suspended. 

During closures a fully signed vehicle diversion will be in place. 

Closure of A616 eastbound and westbound from Flouch Roundabout to Fox Valley Way Roundabout.

Traffic intending to travel west on A616 to Flouch Roundabout shall be diverted onto the A629 northbound at Wortley junction and continue on the A629 northbound to its junction with Well House Lane. At the junction turn left onto Well House Lane and continue to Well House Lane/B6462 junction. At the junction turn left onto B6462 and continue to B6462/A628 junction. At the junction turn right onto A628 and continue to A628/A616 junction (Flouch Roundabout) where the diversion ends.

Traffic intending to travel east on A616 to Fox Valley Way Roundabout shall be diverted onto the A628 eastbound at Flouch Roundabout and continue on the A628 eastbound to its junction with B6462. At the junction turn left onto B6462 and continue to B6462/A629 junction. At the junction turn right onto A629 and continue to A629/A616 (Wortley Junction) where the diversion ends. 

Thank you for your patience while this work is carried out. 

Update:- due to delayed shifts caused by wet weather, the completion date for work on the westbound carriageway which was originally the end of November, will now be January 2024.  We apologise for the disruption caused by this delay - resurfacing requires dry weather to allow the road surface to set. 

We plan to start again on 8th January on the M62 westbound J27 -J26. We will work overnight under a full westbound closure between 8 pm and 6 am on the 8th, 9th, 10th, 13th, and 14th of January - subject to weather conditions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We're resurfacing the M62 between junctions 26 and 27 in both directions for smoother and safer journeys.

At the same time, we will also be: -

  • Servicing the lighting
  • Clearing drainage gullies
  • Litter picking
  • Cutting verges and vegetation
  • Servicing our CCTV motorway monitoring cameras

We aim to work overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday, subject to weather conditions: -

  • Eastbound closure 25/09/2023 – 01/11/23
  • Westbound closure 02/11/2023 – January 2024

We will also close: - (selected closures up to mid January)

  • junction 26 eastbound entry slip road,
  • junction 26 westbound exit slip road
  • junction 27 eastbound exit slip road including the M621 link road. 

A fully signed diversion will be in place with eastbound traffic leaving the M62 at junction 26, onto the A58 and A650 back onto the M62 at junction 27. Westbound will use the same diversion in reverse. 

Thank you for your patience while this essential work is carried out.

M62 Junction 24 - Adkin Bridge Parapets (over A629 Blackley New Road, which leads to Ainley Top Interchange) - reminder.
We’re completing essential maintenance on three bridges, replacing life-expired parapets on the M62 between junctions 24 and 25.  We aim to start work on the first structure at junction 24 over Blackley New Road on Monday, 27 November, until the end of January 2024.  We will be working overnight between 8 pm and 6 am.
To reduce the impact on customers, we will not work over the Christmas period (19 December 2023 to 1 January 2024)
We will work under a mix of 24/7 M62 hard shoulder closures in both directions and overnight lane closures on both the M62 and A629, eastbound and westbound. This will ensure the motorway and local road network remain open to traffic at night. During the day, only the hard shoulder closures will be in place; all lanes will be available.
We must close the M62 J24 westbound exit slip road overnight as and when required during the parapet replacement phase.  A fully signed diversion will be in place.
Please follow signage and be prepared for lane closures ahead. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this work causes and will provide further updates for the remaining two bridges, further west of this junction, nearer the time.

If you wish to discuss the scheme further, please contact National Highways at A66CumbriatoBowesGaps@HighwaysEngland.co.uk

Durham County Council are carrying out improvement work to increase capacity at the B1404 Seaton Lane, this will support the construction of new houses and developments in Seaham and south Sunderland.

A new roundabout will be created at the top of a realigned A19 southbound off-slip road, connecting to the B1404.  This will allow traffic to and from Sunderland to access the route via the A1018, reducing congestion at the Seaton Lodge junction.

A new right to left crossover on the A1018 will also be created, allowing northbound travel for road users heading towards Sunderland.

For more information on this project and the latest closure information can be found on the Durham County Council website https://www.durham.gov.uk/seatonlane  

We are closing the A1 Junction 74 Scotswood - southbound exit slip overnight between 8pm and 6am, from Monday 29 January to Monday 5 February.

This is to allow resurfacing.

Local diversions will be in place.

We will be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A66 immediately east of Blackwell Roundabout. The drainage, access road surfaces, and footpath are showing signs of wear and tear and require attention. 

Work will take place over-night 8pm to 6am Monday through Friday from 5 February 2024 and will take approximately 5 weeks to complete.  Traffic Lights will be in place over-night. Please allow extra time for your journey. 

Please note that all planned work is subject to change due to adverse weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.  

We are closing the A1 Junction 79 Gosforth - northbound exit slip overnight between 8pm and 6am, from Tuesday 6 to Sunday 11 February.

The A19 southbound will be resurfaced between the junctions with the A181 Wellfield Interchange and the A179 at Sheraton. Starting Tuesday 2 April for six weeks, weather permitting. 

The road will be closed overnight between 8pm and 6am the following morning, each night except for Saturdays.

During the day, a 50mph speed limit will be in place.  

Motorists heading for the A19 southbound in this area should follow the signed diversion via the B1320 Burnhope Way, Surtees Road and Yoden Way to Horden. They should then travel via the A1086 to the A179 and re-join the A19 at the Sheraton Interchange. 

We’re carrying out this work overnight, when traffic levels are at their lightest, to keep any disruption to a minimum. However, we do strongly advise anyone planning to travel on this route to allow extra time for their journeys and follow the signposted diversions – and not their satnavs.

The Tenter Hill Bridge, which carries Thorner Road over the A1(M) near Wetherby, will have its steel beams repainted. Starting Thursday 21 March.

The existing paint needs to be replaced to protect key elements from deterioration.  At the same time, we will be carrying out further maintenance on the A1(M) in this area.  

The scheme will be divided into two sections. The first will take place on the northbound side of the bridge between junctions 44 (Bramham) and 45 (Grange Moor).  

The southbound section will then be repainted from Wednesday 10 April, with this part of the scheme likely to last for up to three weeks. 

To ensure this is carried out safely, a series of full overnight closures will be in place on the A1(M).  

Closures and diversions  

The overnight closures will begin on Thursday 21 March, on the A1(M) northbound between junctions 44 (Bramham) and 45 (Boston Spa). The work on this section is expected to be carried out over a period of up to three weeks. During these nights, the southbound carriageway will remain open. 

From Wednesday 10 April, this work will switch to the southbound side, with overnight closures in place on the A1M southbound between junctions 45 and 44 for up to three weeks. The northbound side will stay open. 

The closures will be in place each night, Monday to Friday, and every other weekend, between 8pm and 6am. The A1(M) will remain open during the day, and no road closures will take place over the Easter weekend.  

A fully-signed diversion will be in place. The northbound diversion will be via Paradise Way, Thorner Road and West Woods Road, with the route reversed for the southbound work. Drivers are advised to follow the diversions and not rely on their satnavs. 

We are upgrading the streetlighting at A62 Gildersome - March to April 2024
