Work began on the Testo's roundabout project in May this year.

The scheme aims to raise the A19 above the roundabout and introduce new slip roads for motorists wishing to join the road at the Testo's junction.

New routes for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders will also be created as part of the multi-million pound project.

This follows similar work at the Silverlink roundabout in North Tyneside, which concluded in April.

Overnight closures are taking place on the A19 this weekend.
