Why are these improvements needed?

In 2015, an independent traffic study was carried out to assess the impact of housing developments on Newcastle’s roads. To ensure that the traffic generated by new housing developments is managed, improvements were recommended at the Stamfordham Road/Pooley Road junction. Since this time, we have developed a ‘Phase 1’ scheme and secured funding for delivery. A larger scale scheme will follow once further funding is secured.

What is the timescale for the works?

The works are programmed to start in mid-January 2022, finishing in Spring 2022, subject to weather conditions. This page will be updated with any changes.

We are working with National Highways (formerly Highways England) to install signing to inform users of these works and alternative routes that are available.

If you have any further queries, please contact, using the subject ‘Stamfordham Road/Pooley Road’.

A letter has been sent to local residents. 

Did you know?

The funding for these improvements has been secured from nearby housing developers and the Housing Infrastructure Fund.

Information on funding for this scheme will be published soon.
