This scheme provides benefits for westbound traffic and removes capacity restrictions on this stretch of A191, improving access to employment including DWP sites and Quorum Business Park.
The A191 Corridor scheme involved junction improvements along the A191 Whitley Road, including A191 Whitley Road/B1317 Station Road junction, and the widening of Whitley Road from Tyne View Park to Coach Lane.
The scheme complements the previously delivered A188 Four Lane Ends Pinch Point Scheme and the Local Growth Fund A19 Employment Corridor scheme.
