Posted on 28th June 2018 | in Local Councils , Northumberland County Council

It’s the last chance for the people of Northumberland to have their say on a major scheme which is planned for the A1 between Morpeth and Felton. You can see more here.

The consultation opened on Monday 18 June, and Highways England is asking for people’s view on this scheme which will dual the A1 between Morpeth and Felton.

    Has anyone seen the new A1 proposals from Felton to Morpeth ? At the moment anyone going south from Amble gives way once to get on the A1 at the busy Causey Bridge junction and has 4 miles of single carriageway before the Morpeth bypass.
    Under the new proposal we’ll still have to give way, followed by 2 miles of old single carriageway then give way twice at the new Fenrother junction to finally get on the last 2 miles of new dual carriageway – probably no time saved and more gear changes/fuel costs/pollution than now. Not a great result for all the millions to be spent !!!
    I urge as many Amble residents as possible to attend or email the consultation sessions next month to ask why the busiest junction between Felton and Morpeth is being ignored in favour of Fenrother, which benefits the tiny village of Tritlington and not much else ! Moving the proposed Fenrother junction 2 miles north to Causey Bridge would cost much the same, and benefit southbound commuters from Amble, Hadston, Warkworth, Acklington , Widdrington etc. – a slightly bigger population than Tritlington !
