The Conservative MP for Berwick has hit out at Highways England over plans to close the A1 between the town and Alnwick for two weeks.
This scheme will see the road closed in both directions.
Anne-Marie Trevelyan said "I am appalled that this action has been undertaken without the input of the community.
"We can't have a situation where local residents lives are severely affected, and businesses are put under pressure because of a lack of consultation and due process.
"I have demanded to meet Highways England regarding this issue.
"Highways England will hear mine, and the communities message loud and clear, and that is, Highways England need to go back and consult properly, to ensure they mitigate any impact on residents and local businesses, by avoiding or reducing the current obstacles facing the people by this long and unsustainable closure period."
