The work – which is anticipated to be completed by early September – is being carried out on Stockton Street between the Victoria Road and Park Road junctions.
UPDATE: The left turn into Clarence Road from Stocton Street will be open from Saturday 3rd August.
UPDATE: The final stage of work, including tarmacing and road markings will commence 16th August. Roads are scheduled to reopen from the 23d August.
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.
The measures were introduced on 13th May, and are scheduled to remain in place until early September.
New paving has been laid between the Hartlepool College of Further Education and Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.
Stockton Street will be given new paving and lighting.
The wall and railings down the central reservation has been removed and replaced with quality low-level landscaping.
A new single crossing has been laid across Stockton Street, between Wilko's and Church Square, replacing the two-part pelican crossing.
Traffic lights on Stockton Street Dual Carriageway and the A689 (North) junction will be turned off temporarily. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Motorists heading north along Stockton Street (the A689) will not be able to fork left into Clarence Road or turn right into Church Street. Signed diversions will be in place at both the Burn Road (Tesco roundabout) and Park Road/Huckelhoven Way junctions.
Traffic exiting Clarence Road and Church Street onto the A689 will only be able to turn left.
There will 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 are being 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 commenced 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.
