Lagan Construction Group and joint venture partners John Sisk & Son are preparing to start work on a triple decker roundabout project in North Tyneside as part of the A19/A1058 Coast Road Improvement Scheme on behalf of Highways England. Computer generated footage released by Highways England shows what the new triple decker roundabout at the A19/A1058 Coast Road will look like once complete.
The project to upgrade the A19/A1058 Coast Road junction will involve placing the A19 in an open cut underpass and replacing the existing embankment and adjacent bridges across the roundabout.
The scheme is on the main route to and from the Tyne Tunnel and will mean that people travelling along the A19 will no longer have to queue at the roundabout to go straight on. Instead drivers will be able to use a new section of road which will run under the existing junction. The scheme will also improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists by providing two new shared use bridges over the A1058 slip roads.
