A1 in County Durham closed overnight for resurfacing work

The A1 in County Durham is to be closed overnight for £720,000 of resurfacing work.

The Highways Agency is resurfacing sections of the northbound carriageway between junctions 61 at Bowburn and 63 at Chester-le-Street, in two phases.

Work will begin on Monday and is expected to last until 27 January 2013. There will be some overnight closures.

The agency said work will be suspended over Christmas and new year to help drivers with their journeys.
