Gilesgate roundabout improvement works from 24 January

News   •   Jan 15, 2016 15:53 GMT

Stage 1 of the Gilesgate roundabout signalisation scheme commences on Sunday 24 January.

This will see Gilesgate Bank closed in both directions between 7am and 7pm on 24 January, with services 20 and 20A diverted from Sportsmans Arms at Belmont via Belmont Road and A690 in both directions, omitting Sunderland Road and Gilesgate.

Following this, from Monday 25 January, the bus lane on the A690 will be closed, followed by the closure of the car lane, so delays are likely on service X20 during these phases.

On the following seven Sundays, from 31 January, Gilesgate will be open towards Durham, whilst the outward lane will be closed between 7am and 7pm each Sunday, with Sunderland bound 20 and 20A services being diverted via A690 and Belmont Lane towards Belmont Sportsmans Arms.
