Drivers face delays at Sunderland business park

Have your say

MOTORISTS are warned roadworks planned for Belmont Business Park may cause delays.

The access to the Durham City site is being upgraded and new traffic lights installed at the top of the A690 slip road from the motorway.

The improvements are being carried out to deal with the increase in traffic flow, which will be generated as a result of future development within the business park.

The existing junction at the entrance is set to be improved by widening the carriageway on Broomside Lane.

Work starts on Monday and will last a maximum of five months.

Both A690 sliproads will close.

Broomside Lane between the junction with the A690 and roundabout will also close to vehicles travelling easterly.
