McMullen Road roundabout and Salters Lane cycle route

This scheme will provide 2 lanes on each of the roads at the roundabout (except the access into the retail park) and two lanes round the roundabout, helping more vehicles to use the roundabout every hour. The design also includes a new footpath and cycle path to link to the existing paths in Tommy Crooks Park.

The initial work to relocate utility services – Openreach, Northern Powergrid, Virgin Media and Northumbrian Water started in March 2018.  The main works will start in November 2018.

The resurfacing work is programmed to start on Friday 10th May for 2 weeks. The work will take place overnight and roads will be closed, with diversions in place from 19:00 hours to 05:30 hours. This is to minimise disruption to the travelling public.

The extents of the resurfacing can be viewed in the attached plan [pdf document]

The diversion plans are also attached for the various phases of road closures
