Straker Street Road Closure 17th July 2011

Straker Street (A185) in Jarrow will be partially closed to traffic for up to seven hours from 07:00 on Sunday 17th July 2011 to enable finishing works to be carried out to the road surface as part of the New Tyne Crossing project. 

All lanes will reopen by 14:00 on Sunday 17th July.

Straker Street connects the Tyne Tunnel roundabout with the roundabout at the junction of Howard Street / Priory Road. During these works there will be no access northbound on Straker Street (from the Tyne Tunnel roundabout up to the Howard Street / Priory Road roundabout), and only one lane available southbound.

During this temporary road closure northbound motorists will be asked to follow a diversion via the A185 (direction South Shields) / Church Bank / Priory Road.

Pedestrian routes will be maintained along Straker Street.

The Tyne Tunnel will not be affected by these works and will remain open for business as usual throughout.

TT2 and Bouygues Travaux Publics UK apologise for the temporary disruption associated with this element of work, and would like to thank road users for their ongoing patience.
