Work has been amended on the A66 so that drivers will not experience the same lane closure that caused hour long queues this morning.
Further details about the weekend contraflow work will be made available shortly, but with regards to tomorrow the Highways Agency have said:
Last night we began preparation work for essential carriageway resurfacing which will take place on the westbound A66 between Preston Farm and Elton.
This deep carriageway resurfacing work cannot be undertaken overnight as the material would not cool in time for traffic to run on the surface the following morning. The safest option is to run traffic in contraflow on the eastbound carriageway while maintaining two way traffic flows along the A66. This morning the eastbound carriageway had a lane closed to facilitate installing this future contraflow.
Following the delays experienced by drivers this morning we have amended the programme of work. The eastbound lane closure will be removed tonight and will not be in place tomorrow morning. The majority of the contraflow work will now be undertaken at weekends when traffic flows are lower. All other work will take place overnight and outside of peak traffic times.
