A MAJOR highway scheme to improve the flow of traffic in Ingleby Barwick will begin at the end of the month.
Myton Way will be dualled from the Tesco roundabout to Broom Hill, and the Sandgate roundabout will be replaced with traffic signals.
Ingleby Way will also be dualled from the Tesco roundabout to Barwick Way roundabout.
The works are due to start on Monday 29 February and will take approximately 40 weeks to complete.
It is part of a wider project to reduce peak period congestion in the centre of Ingleby Barwick which has already seen Quarry Farm roundabout upgraded.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor Nigel Cooke, said: “The population in the south of the Borough is continuing to grow so it is really important that the Borough’s highways network is updated to meet their needs.
“Although these improvements are vital to keep traffic moving in the long term, they are impossible to complete without some disruption. We appreciate that Myton Way is very well used by commuters so I urge drivers to bear with us, as once the works are complete, traffic will flow much more freely and they will enjoy much quicker journey times.”
The Ingleby Barwick highway improvement works are being funded by the Local Growth fund, the Department for Transport, private sector match funding and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.
