Scheme Outline

Scheme details

After 2015
In planning or on hold
Junction improvement for use by all traffic
Highways England
Region: North East

Provision of a new dual two-lane flyover allowing the A19 to avoid the badly congested Testos Roundabout with the A184 near Sunderland.

The A19 will be slightly realigned around the junction to accommodate the new flyover.

The roundabout was originally laid out, when it was built, to allow for a flyover on an east-west line to carry the A184. This will not now be provided.
