MUCH-NEEDED resurfacing work will soon begin on the northbound A1 carriageway between Catterick south junction and Catterick north junction in North Yorkshire.
The work will take place between Monday, April 22 and Sunday, May 5 and involves resurfacing the road, which has been hit hard with potholes after the recent spate of bad weather.
All road studs and markings will also be replaced during the work which will be carried out between 8pm and 6am.
The main resurfacing work will be carried out with overnight closures of the northbound carriageway and traffic will be in contraflow on the southbound carriageway.
For safety reasons, a daytime 50mph speed restriction and overtaking ban will also be in place on both northbound and southbound carriageways.
During these closures the northbound entry slip roads at both Catterick south and the Catterick north junctions will also be closed.
Traffic wishing to access the A1 northbound from these junctions will be diverted south on the A1 to the A1(M) junction 51 at Leeming Bar and turned around back onto the A1 northbound.
It will also not be possible to leave the A1 travelling northbound at Catterick north junction, and motorists who want to leave at this junction will leave the A1 at Catterick south junction, travelling north through Catterick Village via the A6136.
On Sunday, April 24 and Friday, May 3, the southbound carriageway will be closed overnight to install the traffic management for the contraflow and traffic will be directed through Catterick Village to the A1.
