Autumn re-surfacing and road closures

Drivers are advised that stretches of road across Sunderland will be closed for resurfacing in the coming weeks as the city council continues its investment in highways and footways.

As part of the work to improve the condition of the city's roads, Lambton A182 Beatrice Terrace will be closed between 8am and 6pm on Sunday 9 October.

A690 Durham Road / North Moor Lane will also be closed between 8am on 6pm on Sunday 16 October.

These works are just some of major re-surfacing projects currently programmed by Sunderland City Council and have been programmed to coincide with periods of reduced traffic on these roads.

Further works taking place this month will include the re-surfacing of Old Durham Road, Houghton-le-Spring towards the end of October and work on City Way continuing throughout November.

The full re-surfacing programme, including all associated road closures, is available on the council's website at Roads and bridges - Sunderland City Council.

Funding for the works is provided through the council's Local Transport Plan and Incentive Fund allocation, its capital budget and the Government's Pothole Fund.

Councillor Kevin Johnston, Sunderland City Council's cabinet member for Dynamic City, said: "Improving highways and maintaining roads is a key part of our commitment to infrastructure across Sunderland.

"While road closures can cause an inconvenience, we always aim to carry out resurfacing works during quieter periods where possible, such as overnight or on Sundays. I'd like to thank motorists for their patience and understanding as we carry out this necessary work."
