A197 Morpeth Northern Bypass 6 April 2017

Construction of a new single carriageway road to link the A1 north-west of Morpeth with the A197 Pegswood bypass at the Whorral Bank roundabout.

As part of the scheme, the existing A1/A192 junction at Fairmoor will be closed, and a new, grade-separated junction will be built just to the south.
