A19/A189 Moor Farm Junction 

Location: UK » North East » NE
Sector: Transport

The government cancelled the proposed improvement works at the A19/A189 Moor Farm Junction near Dudley in its October 2010 Spending Review.

The existing junction is a six-armed roundabout. The A19 provides access to the Port of Tyne, and to major employment sites, while the A189 is a major arterial commuter route linking South Northumberland with Newcastle. Traffic flows on the A19 through the junction are expected to increase significantly on completion of the second Tyne Tunnel.

A recently completed improvement scheme will deliver short-term benefits, but the cancelled project was required to maintain an acceptable level of service in the longer term at this key location.
