Gridlock: Busy traffic queues on Newcastle Road as work ramps up on Testo's roundabout revamp
Drivers started their Monday morning with delays as they faced traffic chaos on one of the region’s main routes.
A series of planned roadworks are underway on the A184 Newcastle Road, heading eastbound towards Testo’s roundabout, as part of a multi-million pound transformation scheme. But those heading off to work and school were caught up in gridlock due to a lane closure on the route. The Testo’s project, which launched in May, is due to run until 2021.
