Stockton Street


£1m improvements to key route mark next chapter in Hartlepool’s regeneration.

The regeneration of Hartlepool enters another important phase next week when work starts on £1m of improvements to a key route in and out of the town.

The work – which is anticipated to be completed by early September - will be carried out on Stockton Street between the Victoria Road and Park Road junctions.


  • The project has been designed by Hartlepool Borough Council’s in-house Engineering department and is funded by the Council and the Tees Valley Combined Authority. The work will be carried out by local firm Seymour Civil Engineering.

Next Steps

  • The wall that currently runs along the central reservation of Stockton Street will be removed and replaced with quality low-level landscaping, and Stockton Street will be given new paving and lighting.
  • The current two-part pelican crossing between Church Square and Wilkinson’s corner will be replaced with a single crossing.
  • There will also be improved access to Middleton Grange Shopping Centre through the creation of right-turn entry into the shopping centre’s multi-storey car park from Stockton Street southbound, the right turn will be controlled by sensor-operated traffic lights.
  • Alterations will be made to the junction with Church Street and Clarence Road. The northbound sliproad onto Clarence Road and the southbound sliproad onto Church Street will be removed and replaced with right turns at the junction traffic lights. This will be safer for pedestrians.
  • The work will start on Monday 11th February, and throughout its duration, a temporary one lane system will be in operation on Stockton Street between the Victoria Road and Park Road junctions both northbound and southbound.
  • While the work is being carried out, the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre and all the other businesses in the Stockton Street area will be open as normal.
  • We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
