The main construction work on North Tyneside's triple decker roundabout starts today.
The £75million pound project will see Highways England lower the A19 beneath the existing A1058 Coast Road to reduce traffic congestion.
This will mean that people travelling along the A19 will no longer have to queue at the roundabout to go straight on and instead will be able to use a new section of road which will run under the existing junction.
Highways England say the upgrade will also improve safety for the thousands of drivers that use the junction each day as well as providing better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
The scheme is due to be completed at the end of March 2019.
Highways England wants to hear the views of local people about their proposals. The public have until January 6, 2017 to respond.Read the full story ›
