A SECTION of the A67 at Darlington will close for resurfacing next week.

The A67 between the Morton Palms A66 roundabout eastwards, and the roundabout with Sadberge Road at Middleton St George, will be closed from Tuesday (August 26) until Friday, September 5.

During the closure, traffic will be diverted via Sadberge Road and the A66.

Arriva bus services 12 and 12a will operate an amended timetable via the diversion route.

Copies of the amended timetable are available from from the Dolphin Centre, Crown St Library or Evolution in Darlington.
