Will there be delays?

Delays are inevitable while contractors carry out these essential works.

The A174 is key route between the East Coast, Teesport and the industrial sites of Wilton and carries a lot of traffic as they head for the A19 and further afield.

During the series of closures there are clearly signed diversion routes across southern Middlesbrough drivers are warned to expect delays and to plan ahead for their journeys.

How can I check real-time updates on traffic and closures?

Closures and works are weather permitting and maybe postponed or cancelled altogether for the latest information we recommend you follow @HighwaysNEAST on X (Formerly Twitter) or visit Traffic England
