A1 in Northumberland

We propose to improve the A1 in Northumberland by providing additional road capacity and enabling greater access to and from Northumberland. Our improvement programme includes:

  • A1 Morpeth to Ellingham: 13 miles of upgrade to dual carriageway linking the Morpeth and Alnwick bypasses with the dual carriageway near Ellingham. This will create a continuous, high quality dual carriageway from Newcastle to Ellingham.
  • A1 north of Ellingham: we‚Äôll enhance the performance and safety of this section of road, including overtaking opportunities, junction improvements and improved crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
