Road closures in Northumberland

22 Nov 2016


Staff have been working through the night to ensure any disruption is minimised along with colleagues from the emergency services and other partner organisations.

However, there are some significant road closures the public need to be aware of ahead of their morning commute. They include:

The A1 near to Newton on Moor at Alnwick also has a lot of standing water and the road is down to one lane in both directions.

The message from police and the council is for motorists to reduce their speed and concentrate on the road. If possible leave extra time for your journeys as there will be congestion.

Officers and local authority workers will be on duty through the morning to try and ensure the roads are moving as quickly as possible.
