Road resurfacing work is to be carried out at Shotton Colliery.

Durham County Council is to resurface a section of the B1280 Salters Lane on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September.

Work will take place from the junction with Durham Lane by the Blue House pub, to the roundabout with Station Road and Sorrell Close.

It will require the closure of this stretch of road from 7am to 7pm both days.

Signposted diversions will be in place.

John Reed, the council’s head of technical services, said: “This work is part of our ongoing programme to maintain the road network across the county, for the benefit of all users.

“We are doing all we can to minimise disruption and we thank motorists in advance for their patience while it is being done.”
