A19 Testos Roundabout Improvement 10 February 2017

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.

A19 Coast Road Junction Improvement 13 December 2016

A scheme to reconstruct the interchange of the A19 and A1058 north-east of Newcastle upon Tyne. The aims of the scheme are to improve safety and reduce congestion at the junction, which is situated just to the north of the Tyne Tunnel. Since the tunnel was duplicated and made free-flow, this junction has become one of the few remaining impediments to traffic on the A19.

The Highways Agency's preferred option is to build a new cutting and associated slip-roads that will allow the A19 to pass freely through the junction under the existing A1058.

A19 New Tyne Crossing 13 January 2012

Construction of a second two-lane tunnel alongside the existing one at Jarrow. The new tunnel would take all southbound traffic, with the existing one converted to take all northbound traffic. This project would provide continuous dual carriageway from the A1(M) at Dishforth via Middlesbrough and Newcastle to the A1 at Wide Open.
